Trade-Up Tuesday: Rice



Brown rice is a whole grain, which means the bran, germ, and endosperm is still intact. This means that you lose fewer nutrients when compared to the production of white rice. The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys a large amount of the nutrients such as B vitamins, phosphorus, iron, and fiber. While there are not major differences in the two when comparing nutrition labels, if you are aiming to eat a more heart healthy diet and fewer processed foods, then brown rice is a great choice!
