BROWN RICE vs. WHITE RICE
️For years and years, white rice has been demonized as "bad" or "worse" than brown rice. The reasons vary but mainly have to do with one of two [misinformed] points.
Vitamin and Mineral Content - for some reason people think brown rice has more/better nutrients. But, as you can see in this picture, that's not the case. They both have a bunch of important nutrients and what one lacks, the other makes up for. Worth noting, the micronutrient differences between the two are VERY small. So while both have distinct advantages, the vitamin/mineral content between white & brown rice is nearly identical.
️The Glycemic Index (GI) - long story short, people have been led to believe white rice is worse for you because it's GI is higher and therefore spikes blood sugar more. But, fact is, the GI of a food doesn't tell us how "bad" it is for you. It just tells us how quickly that food can raise blood sugar. Watermelon, for example, is one of the highest GI foods in the world but I guarantee you don't know a single person who got fat or had serious health problems from eating it. There's just A LOT more to health (calorie content, nutrient makeup, etc) than the glycemic index, and anyone who tells you otherwise is probably trying to sell you something.
The take-home point here is white rice is NOT worse for you than brown rice. They both have pros and cons and, truthfully, you'll probably be healthier incorporating both into your diet rather than either one alone....but the idea the one being "healthier" that the other does not make sense...HEALTHY food have calories too...
Make sure you are using ALL the information, not just the ones that seem the best to fit your ideas ;-)
