Latin name: Dolichos biflorus Linn.
Sanskrit/Indian name: Kulattha
Scientists from the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology have found that unprocessed raw horse gram seeds not only possess anti-hyperglycemic properties but also have qualities which reduce insulin resistance.
The scientists made a comparative analysis between horse gram seeds and their sprouts and found that the seeds would have greater beneficial effects on the health of hyperglycemic individuals.
The majority of anti-oxidant properties are confined to the seed coat and its removal would not do any good.
