Sprouted Brown Rice (GABA) is short-grain rice with its brown hull intact that germinates over an extended time, but is stopped before a shoot emerges from the kernel. This process develops a grain with a softer, less chewy texture than regular brown rice and a sweet, mild, nutty flavor. It also has almost five times as much gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)—a naturally occurring amino acid that helps regulate muscle tone and stress, than regular brown rice.
