Black gram is one of the important pulse crop grown throughout India. It is grown in rainy and summer season. It has a black colored skin with a sheen. It is cylindrical and vertical in shape. Beneath its skin is a whitish portion which is oval in shape. It is generally used in the form of 'Dal'. It has a very short life span ranging from 90 to 120 days.
Select the Black gram that is free from insects, and pests. Black gram should be free from any inert matter i.e. dust particles, or weed seeds.
Consumption of high amounts of Black gram increases the amount of ureic acid in blood which stimulates their calcification and stone formation in the kidney. They may also lead to gall stones or gout.(2)
