Brown vs White Rice, Is Brown Really Better?

Fresh Palate

It's been said countless times in the health food community that brown rice is the healthier choice over white. I've done some research on this topic and am going to share what I discovered. You may be surprised. 

To sum it up, it doesn't matter and here's why.

White rice has been called "unhealthy' and even "fattening". This is untrue. White rice is  simply brown rice with the outer coating removed. This actually makes it easier to digest than brown. But, brown rice is technically more nutritious than white. It contains more fiber and more vitamin B, but not by much. Protein content is also brought up when arguing that brown rice is better than white, but again not by much. The choice of which rice to chose is not worth worrying about and can be made completely based on personal preference. Eat whatever rice tastes good to you.

Hope this helped clear things up a little!!
