What is GABA?
The most touted health benefit of sprouted rice is GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). It is an amino acid found in common everyday health foods, such as peaches, green snap beans, and rice. GABA also exists in people and works as a neurotransmitter that nutrition studies show provide a number of health benefits: Lowers anxiety, increases the sleep cycle giving deeper rest, lowers blood pressure, and improves other cardiovascular functions.
The germination process adds a variety of nutrients through the activation of dormant enzymes,while also softening the bran layer.The rice kernel is germinated until the flavor and nutritional benefits are maximized. Subsequently, the germination process is interrupted and the kernel moisture is reduced to pre-germination levels, preserving the nutritional benefits. Germinated / sprouted brown rice has four times the GABA content of regular rice, and over ten times the GABA of white rice!
