Read this on wikipedia and tough it might be intesresting:


When preparing brown rice, a nutritionally superior method of preparation known as GABA Rice may be used. Ths involves soaking washed brown rice for 8 to 12 hours in warm water (100F or 38C) prior to cooking it. This process stimulates germination, which activates various enzymes in the rice. By this method, a result of the United Nations Year of Rice, it is possible to obtain a complete amino acid profile, including GABA.

Haven't found much more information (such as the nutritionnal profile) on it but read that it tasted better. Germination usually also means more vitamins and easier to digest.
