The difference between brown rice and white rice is that brown rice has the bran layer intact, while white rice has the bran layer removed through the rice polishing process. Brown is considered healthier than white because the bran layer contains many nutrients, but brown rice has a different flavor and texture, takes longer to cook, and does not store as well as white rice.

White rice

It is a refined grain, so the bran and germ have been stripped from it during the milling process. This extends the shelf life of the rice and gives it a finer, less gritty texture. However, without the bran and germ, this rice variety does lose some of the nutritional value that brown rice retains. Since refined grains lose some of their nutritional value during the milling process, many of them, including white rice, are enriched or fortified with B vitamins and iron.

Brown rice

It is a whole grain, the healthiest grain you can eat. Whole grains are grains that have been left in their natural state. They are unrefined, which means that the bran and germ are not removed during the milling process. The bran and germ are where most of the nutrients are located and are what make this rice so healthy.

It contains high levels of vitamins B2, B3, and B6, which are necessary for energy production, a healthy nervous system, and good digestion. This rice variety is also special because it is considered to be an excellent source of manganese. Studies have shown that one cup of brown rice will provide you with 88.0% of your daily manganese.

This rice is rich in natural fiber, which helps maintain intestinal health, prevent cancer and fight obesity. In fact, some statistics show that brown rice contains 349% more fiber than white rice. In addition, it is an excellent source of selenium, a trace mineral that has been shown to help prevent colon cancer and is a powerful antioxidant that, along with vitamin E, helps prevent heart disease and boosts the immune system.

When comparing the nutritional data of these two products, you may be surprised to find that brown rice is no healthier than white rice. Each cup contains about 200 calories per cup, and both are very low in cholesterol and sodium. Both are also low in fat, but white rice is actually lower in fat. One cup of white rice contains only one gram of fat, while brown rice contains three grams of fat. However, brown is a far cry from white in terms of nutrition due to its unrefined state.

In the international market, white rice is considered more popular than brown rice because of its higher aroma and economical price. This white rice is consumed all over the world.
