What is GBR ? It is simply brown rice sprouted (or germinated). Many don?t know that brown rice can be sprouted. We all know that whole grains/pulses (unpolished or unprocessed) are beneficial for our health due to the higher nutritional value when compared with processed or polished grains. Whole grains and pulses when sprouted have additional health benefits. Proper preparation of whole grains prior to cooking is an important process to get the maximum health benefit out of them.
