Health Benefits of Brown Rice

Brown Rice has long been known as the healthy alternative to white rice. Ironically, brown and white rice are the same grain. The former with its bran and germ (outer layers) left intact; the latter having it removed. As with other grains the bran and germ layer of rice contain most of the vitamins, minerals, and oils - all the healthy stuff. The endosperm, or white center of rice is mostly starch. As a whole grain, brown rice has a much higher fiber content than white rice. It also has a good amount of fiber compared to other whole grains. To see how it measures up to other grains go to our whole grain comparison charts.
