you can get long grain brown rice, I like that a lot better than normal brown rice---==-=-=- Current Xfactor Log-=-=-==---

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.
Impossible is nothing.

According to this Jasmin rice is very high GI -90-100, (for those who care) where as Basmati is medium (~60). I guess nutritionally they are similar - although I haven't checked that.

Eat what u like . . .
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.Best Regards,

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.
