i think the only difference between white and brown rice is their nutritional value. Brown rice obviously still got the grain, or most of it, whereas white rice is a processed form of brown rice.
The GI is the same in both of them.
Impossible is not a fact. It`s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It`s a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
B4 u decide u can't stand brown rice, make sure u try some that is fresh. The bran oils go rancid after 6 months, "old" brown rice tastes just awful.
Basmati & jasmine r types of long-grain rice w/ exotic flavors, from India & Thailand respectively. They r mostly available as "polished" (white) types, but "unpolished" (brown) versions r also available.
There are some differences in GI, but considering they will b eaten with other things, these r insignificant in the big picture, the overall glycemic load of a typical meal.
Bottom Line: Eat what u like. Don't listen 2 food extremists.
To the optimist, the glass is half full . . .
To the pessimist, the glass is half empty . . .
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Helpful or encouraging posters in my journal get repped.
i'm pretty sure that basmati and jasmine rice you get at most restaurants are of the polished variety; i.e. not brown, similar to white rice you see at most places. i know jasmine rice is a flavored long grain rice (the thai's add jasmine flowers to the rice which absorb flavors, similar to jasmine tea which is green tea w/ jasmine flowers). basmati i'm not 100% sure on, but the indians use a lot of thai long grain and jasmine rice in their cooking, and add their own flavoring to it; i.e. saffron.
why can't you eat brown? digestive issues or flavor issues? i eat white rice every day, and i hate brown rice.
