Healthy Food Brief: Brown Rice

Healthy Food: Brown Rice

What is it?
Brown Rice is a whole grain that is made from either unmilled or partly milled rice. It has similar calories, carbohydrates and proteins to the more common white rice, but sometimes contains more fat. The extra bran in brown rice may help lower cholesterol, and is a good source of dietary fiber.

Rice can be eaten plain, in soups and stews, ground into flour and made into pastas, noodles, breads and other baked goods.

Where to find it:
Most large supermarkets carry a few brown rices, and you can find a wide array of them at your local health food stores.
