Brown rice has a high fibre bran coating. This extra coating makes brown rice more nutritious. Brown rice has light tan in colour and has nuttier flavour and chewier texture than white rice. Because of outer bran coating more water and longer is needed for brown rice. This rice variety is ideal for controlling high blood pressure, while the high fibre content allows you to watch your weight without compromising on taste. This rice also fulfils your daily micronutrient requirement by offering a balanced combination of B vitamins, manganese, selenium and iron.
