Facts about Brown Rice
Brown rice is high in protein and dietary fiber, cholesterol-free, low fat and rich in certain vitamins and minerals. The oil in brown rice has cholesterol-lowering effects. According to Elements4Health, researchers have found that eating two or more servings of brown rice weekly is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes (Livestrong.com).
Brown rice also has vitamin K, good for blood clotting and bone health. White rice is stripped clean of that benefit. Just one cup of cooked long-grain brown rice provides 216 calories, 5.03 grams of protein, 1.75 grams of total fat, 44.77 grams of carbohydrates and 3.5 grams of fiber. But remember, one cup can be 2 to 3 servings. So if you are worried about the carbohydrates, that 44.77 grams is more like 14.9 grams per serving. Also note, that the cards in brown rice are complex carbohydrates. Meaning they digest slower, therefore blood sugar levels are even and nothing goes to fat. White rice can’t claim that, as it has been left out after being stripped of its fiber.
