Qualities: Brown rice's health benefits are partially due to the way it is prepared, according to the George Mateljan Foundation for the World’s Healthiest Foods, which promotes the benefits of healthy eating. Brown rice is a whole grain, meaning that it contains three parts of the grain kernel: the outer, fiber-filled layer called the bran, the nutrient-rich core called the germ, and the starchy middle layer called the endosperm, according to the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). The outer, inedible hull is removed.
Common Use: Brown rice may be beneficial for diabetics and hyperglycemic individuals. It has a low glycemic index, which might help reduce insulin surges and assist in the stabilization of blood sugar levels in the body. A comparative study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition revealed that may be rich in phytic acid, fiber, and essential polyphenols. It is a complex carbohydrate that can help in the slower release of sugar as compared to white rice.
How to cook: fill a large stockpot with water and bring to a boil, add a pinch of salt and desired amount of pasta and return to a rolling boil, cook for 10 minutes or until desired texture. Separate the pasta gently with a fork during cooking to prevent clumping. Rinse it with cold water to firm up the texture.
Storage: keeps in a cool, dry, and dark location.
