What is it about?
The nutrient composition of untreated, cooked and fermented hungry rice (Digitaria exilis) samples was determined. Hungry rice is a good source of iodine in the diet. Fermentation for 108 h improved the protein content of this cereal, lowered the sodium content and decreased the anti-nutrients (tannins, phytates
