The white varieties of rice have many shapes, flavours and aromas. But nowadays, everyone wants to eat healthily and lead an active lifestyle. We are becoming careful about what nutrients are required in our body.
Brown rice is considered to be healthier than white rice and during its processing, only the outermost layer is removed. When we consider white rice, other layers like bran, parts of the germ are polished and provide finer grains. The refined rice may be more flavorful but does not contain essential nutrients. The outer layer of rice provides the necessary nutrients. They are full of vitamins and minerals like phosphorus, copper, magnesium etc. Since brown rice is high in fibre, if you eat small quantities, it will make you feel full, thus helping in weight loss.
