By Radikal | 20 November, 2012

Brown is nothing but unpolished rice. A whole grain of rice has several layers. Only the outermost layer, the hull, is removed to produce what we call brown rice. Brown rice has more nutrient value than white rice. We give out nutritional benefits of brown rice and why it is a healthier version.

Rich in fiber: Brown rice is great for people who are at a risk of getting colon cancer. It is a rich source of fiber which is needed to minimise the amount of time cancer-causing substances spend in contact with colon cells. Fiber also helps in blood sugar regulation.

Good source of manganese: Manganese helps the body produce energy from the food you eat. Manganese is also an important component of an antioxidant enzyme which provides protection against damage from the free radicals produced during energy production. We recommend Radikal Brown basmati rice as it promises essential nutrients such as manganese, selenium and vitamin B.

Goodness of zinc: Zinc helps in healing wounds and keeping the immune system functioning properly. It is also rich in antioxidants and protects the body from free radicals that can cause damage. Packed with the goodness of essential nutrients, Radikal Brown basmati rice comes with a unique texture perfect for delicious meal recipes.

Packed with vitamin B-6: A serving of brown rice provides 23 per cent of your daily vitamin B6 requirement. It also helps in the formation of the neurotransmitter serotonin, red blood cell synthesis and the production of DNA cells.

It can lower cholesterol: The oils present in brown rice helps in lowering levels of LDL cholesterol also known as bad cholesterol. In addition to that, a diet high in whole grain can increase the levels of HDL which is the good cholesterol.
