According to Ayurveda classics:
“Cereals & Pulses must be used between 1 – 2 years after their production”
New grains should be avoided as they are heavy to digest, undergo improper digestion, increase secretions in the digestive channels making the food sticky and causing blockage of the channels. This further aggravates indigestion and heaviness.
Long term intake of New grains is considered to be one of the cause of manifestation of Prameh which is correlated with Diabetes Mellitus.
