Brown rice: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients

Brown rice

Since most of the beneficial nutrients, vitamins and minerals are contained in the shell, brown rice is considered more healthy than regular white rice. In addition, the fiber and vegetable fat content significantly lowers the glycemic index of whole-grain rice. And it is for the same reason that brown rice (red rice in particular) needs to be cooked longer to cook it properly.
