Brown Rice

What is brown rice?

It’s a whole grain rice, meaning it contains the bran, germ and endosperm layers.

Why brown rice over white rice?

Since it’s a whole grain, it’s a lot higher than white rice in:

Fiber – to keep full for longer and “regular”

Vitamins and Minerals – such as magnesium, thiamine and niacin.

What kind of brown rice should I buy?

I always buy Lundberg Sprouted Brown Basmati Rice, 16 Ounce, a brand that has the only ingredient being brown rice.
