Earlier (Thousands of years), everyone used to eat brown rice until the invention of processing machine for white rice. People started using white rice because of its colour, can be stored for longer time than brown rice, and more over it takes less time to cook. Though white rice is popular, it has its own disadvantages.

Brown hand pounded rice

Brown rice is, rice which is hulled (the covering husk is removed) leaving the outer layer of the bran on the grain. Brown rice contains all the edible parts of rice. The greatness of hand pounded rice lies in its retention of bran

Brown rice is basically unmilled or partially milled or non-polished rice. It is produced by hand pounding using mortar and pestle or stone grinder. All types of rice are originally brown rice before they are processed into white rice. The removal of only the outermost layer (husk) of rice grains produces brown rice. When the next layers underneath the husk (the bran and the germ) are removed, the remaining starchy endosperm produces the white rice. This process strips out several of the nutrients, dietary minerals and almost all of the rice fiber.

It is a kind of whole grain. It bears a mild nutty flavor. Brown rice is a complex carbohydrate that provides 15 essential nutrients, including B-vitamins, niacin and potassium. In the olden days, paddy used to be hand pounded and winnowed to remove the husk and consumed as such.

Polishing removes the layer that is filled with health-supportive, essential fats that make rice highly susceptible to oxidation. Though this extends the shelf life of the product, the resulting white rice is simply a refined starch that is largely deprived of its original nutrients. But brown rice retains all the nutrients that nature bestowed it with.

Nutritional Profile of Brown Rice

Brown rice is an excellent source of magnesium, iron, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, silica, selenium, manganese, Vitamin K ,B1, B2, B3, and B6. Brown rice is a good source of dietary fiber, protein, and gamma-oryzanol. White rice is brown rice that has had essential nutrients removed when processed in order to make it easier and faster to cook, and to give it a longer shelf life. This is accomplished by removing the bran, and with it, minerals and vitamins that are necessary in our diet.

Caution

Brown rice is not seen to have any negative effect on the body, including any allergic effect. It does not contain any significant amount of oxalates and purines. The inorganic brown rice contains traces of arsenic. Though low doses of arsenic are not seen to cause any serious diseases, its heavy intake can make one more susceptible to the risk of cancer.

So, always go for the organically grown brown rice, as it is free of arsenic content.

SUMMARY

Brown rice should not be treated as farmer’s food or animal feed.

It has many nutritional values. However, white rice is easy to cook and looks pleasant it is not suggested for good health. It is better to switch back to brown rice to avoid the biggest killers of present generation such as obesity, diabetes, and cancer to have healthier and longer life.

Thus, we can consider brown rice to be a complete balanced food. After discovering such amazing facts we must gear up to quit white rice and switch over to brown rice.
