Brown Rice White
Sir, Which is having more sugar among brown rice & white rice and which one is not good for diabetics? ?
Brown rice better: Hi. White rice, like all refined grains, is less healthy for you than the whole grain (brown rice in this case, but also whole wheat compared to white flour). The whole grains have fiber and nutrients that the processing removes. Refined grain products are not good for anyone, including diabetics. Sugar is not added to grains in the refining process, however; whole grains have as much starch. ...Read more
Is it true abt arsenic in brown and white rice cereal? I've been feeding my 7mo cereal at three meals daily, because he loves it.

The brown rice I was eating still had the husk/she'll on the outside of some of the rice grains is this ok to eat?
No.: Meats have some transfats, but most are manmade. Transfats are made by hydrogenating oils, which turns them into solids (shortening). Transfats are used in processed foods b/c they last longer on shelf that way -- cookies/pie crusts/chips/popcorn/donuts/creamer/margarine. They raise LDL (bad) and lower HDL (good) cholesterol, which leads to heart disease. Saturated fats are just as bad! ...Read more
Whole fiber: White rice has been associated with a small increased risk for diabetes (about 13%) and brown rice has been associated with a similar decrease risk for developing diabetes (about 14%).

Is brown rice is the same with black rice in terms of nutrients and sugar-releasing thingy? Or Black rice is better than all?
Both colors of rice are starches or carbohydrates. They will stimulate insulin release due to their sugar.
Black rice has the highest amount of antioxidant anthocyanin of any plant. It also contains iron which maybe hard to get for a vegetarian without eating meat.
Eat in moderation and enjoy all types of rice. ...Read more
I have been getting hives recently and have been eating raw brown rice everytime I go to the kitchen. Are the two connected?
No: There are numerous different kinds of hives. Sometimes it is allergy to food or medicine. Often it is not allergy. If you have hives every day for 6 weeks, you probably have chronic urticaria which is not allergy. See a dermatologist to determine if you have hives, which kind, and how to manage it.

Cooked brown rice and it says every 1/4 cup is 160 I made 1/2 cup so it's 360 the rice doubled in size to 2 cups did the calories increase too??
Calories=cooked: Measure the product after it is cooked for accurate calorie information. Cooking only adds water, btw, it doesn't affect the nutritional value. If you use parboiled rice or parboil it yourself, the glycemic index goes down a bit (the extent to which your blood sugar rises), which is a good thing. ...Read more
Which type? Yes, but..: There is not just one "brown rice diet." I do not advise a diet of only brown rice and water. This will result in toxins coming out of your fat and brown rice does not give enough nutritional support to help our body to process these toxins. A brown rice diet with additional organic fruits & vegetables is much healthier, but I do not advise it primarily for weight loss- please see comment for more:. ...Read more
