Rice Brown Milled
Rice is a staple food in much of the world, and for good reason: with the addition of some vegetables and perhaps a bit of meat or fish, a bowl of rice makes a tasty, satisfying, and nutritious meal. Brown rice, which has only the outer hull removed, retains--along with its bran layer--an impressive variety of vitamins and minerals, including niacin, vitamin B6, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and even some vitamin E. Brown rice contains only a small amount of protein, but that is of good quality because of its relatively high level of the amino acid lysine. Because the bran is not milled away, brown rice contains four times the amount of insoluble fiber found in white rice--a prime reason for eating brown rice instead of white.
