grains and pulses should never be eaten dry they contain antinutrients ,
enzyme inhibitors that make them not very assimilable.
To eat them raw they have to be either freshly harvested in the milky stage
or rehydrated and sprouted .
There they can make a cheap nutritive ( protein rich , ) addition to a
frutarian diet when fruits and vegetables reveal themselves insuficiante to
whoever hold on on staying vegetarian.
