    Ingredients

    Brown rice.

    After rice is harvested, the grain is allowed to dry and the outer hull removed. The remaining germ and bran, which give the rice its tan color and a pleasantly chewy texture, constitutes brown rice. There are currently over 40,000 varieties of cultivated rice and each has a brown form. In contrast, white rice is rice which has been further processed and polished.

    Brown rice’s nutritional benefits are numerous and well-documented. Brown rice boasts a low glycemic index and contains 7 percent of the fiber required for a 2,000-calorie diet. One cup of brown rice delivers 80 percent the average person’s requirement for manganese, a mineral critical to brain and nerve function. Brown rice also 2.5 times the iron of its white counterpart, and a rich source of selenium.

    Brown rice is delicious in a wide variety of preparations, from salads to pilafs to stuffing and much more.
