Love Rice? Prefer brown to white

Love Rice? Prefer brown to white

Brown rice is better for you than white — most of us know that!

But, did you know that Brown rice is counted in one of the World’s most healthy foods?

Majority of consumers typically choose white rice over brown rice because of the difference of appearance. While it’s true white rice looks so much more delicious than brown rice, it doesn’t mean it’s the healthier alternative.

Why Brown Rice?

Brown Rice is the unprocessed version of White Rice. Brown rice, unlike white rice, still has the side hull and bran, which renders quicker cooking times and makes it easier to digest as it’s much “lighter” in the stomach. The side hulls and brans provide “natural wholeness” to the grain and are rich in proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium.

On the other hand, white rice has been stripped of iron, vitamins, zinc, magnesium and other nutrients during the refining process.

Brown rice as an excellent source of manganese, and a good source of selenium, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, and niacin (vitamin B3). The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids.
