Simply Natural Organic Jasmine Brown Rice 1kg
Why Brown Rice?
Before white rice went through the refining process, it at one time looked exactly like brown rice. Brown rice, unlike white rice, still has the side hull and bran. The side hulls and brans provide “natural wholeness” to the grain and are rich in proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. For those trying to lose weight or those suffering from diabetes, brown rice can prove a healthful staple given its low glycemic rating which helps reduce insulin spikes.
Organic by definition, means the crop or plant contains lower levels of agricultural chemicals that may harm health compared to conventionally-grown crops, brown rice in this case.
Some reports claim that regular brown rice contains significantly higher levels of arsenic than white rice. This is due to the fact that arsenic, which is a chemical element that’s found in water, air, food and soil, concentrates in the outer layer of rice bran.
Organic brown rice contain a lot less arsenic than non-organic rice, and it’s more likely to be organic rather than inorganic arsenic, which are from fertilisers and pesticides that contain arsenic, or contamination from mining and smelting ores.
