Diabetes is a chronic disease which occurs when the pancreas is unable to produce sufficient amount of insulin, a hormone that is essential to balance the glucose level in blood. The consumption of food causes the blood glucose level high and the body cannot control this situation because of lack of insulin. Unfortunately, in India, more than 50 million people (almost half of the total population) are suffering from the disease.

Sprouted fenugreek is a wonderful grain which controls blood sugar level. Fenugreek consists of amino acids that stimulate insulin production. Fenugreek seeds are packed with iron, fiber, potassium, protein and vitamin C.
