Did you know that rice is the staple food of Filipinos? The vitamin B in rice makes our brain work in full speed. And it's good for tyhe nervous system, too.Brown rice is also the most easiest to digest and is good for those with diabetes.The vitamin contents of rice varies on how it is milled.Unmilled(brown) rice has more vitamins and nutrients than milled rice or the white and polished rice.In general, both white and brown rice contain vitamins and minerals that our body needs.It is a good source of vitaminB5, lactic acids, mold,vitamin C and fibre which is the best way to fight colon cancer, the one known to be the topmost killer in the world today.

Hi fanta! I love rice too. I'm glad there are many ways of preparing it. A day without rice is like a day without food. That's how I feel usually.

I also love brown rice! It is way better for us as compared to white rice. Many nutrients are stripped away in the preparation of white rice. That is why they have to fortify it back with nutrients. Kind of seems pointless to eat the white kind when the brown is obviously superior. I try to eat it at least 3 times a week. It literally goes with anything as a side dish.
