The hot debate between white rice vs. brown rice has raged on for years. Although brown rice is often touted as the healthier choice (don’t get me wrong, it has its merits), we wanted to take a deeper look at the many benefits white rice offers, making it a super healthy rice choice.

Here are 4 facts about organic white rice that you probably didn’t even know!1
In a previous blog, we shared how brown rice is just white rice with the bran and germ still intact. This makes white rice way more digestible than brown rice. The milling process removes the outer bran layer, which can be hard to digest for some people with sensitive digestive systems.
2. Lower in anti-nutrients:
White rice contains fewer anti-nutrients compared to brown rice. Anti-nutrients are compounds that can interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients. By removing the bran layer, white rice can absorb minerals like zinc, copper, iron, magnesium, niacin, and calcium.
3. Quick energy source:
White rice is an excellent source of carbohydrates, offering a quick and easily accessible energy boost. This makes it an ideal choice for athletes and individuals with high energy expenditure.
4. Gentle on the stomach:
If you're prone to upset stomachs or gastrointestinal issues, white rice is often recommended due to its bland nature and low fiber content, which can be soothing and easy on the stomach.
