Nutrients in rice | Benefits of Rice types ( Brown Rice | Red Rice | White Rice | Parboiled Rice)


hey everyone welcome to another health
video today’s topic is nutrients in rice the outer covering of rice is called the
husk it is hardened not edible if we remove only the husk we get the
whole grain rice the next layer bran is retained in whole grain rice
it is usually brown in color that’s how brown rice gets its name red rice is
another type of whole grain rice which has gotten red due to high amounts of
red compound called anthocyanin the major nutrients in the bran is fat but
the fat in rice bran is mostly the unsaturated type unlike the saturated
fat the unsaturated type lowers the cholesterol levels
bran is also containing carbohydrates and proteins it is rich in vitamins like
b1 b3 b5 b6 and also minerals like iron zinc manganese and phosphorus and thanks
to its high fiber content rice bran further cuts down the cholesterol levels
and the calorie intake like the bran the germ of the rice grain also contains
fats carbohydrates proteins vitamins minerals and fibers
since the bran and the germ is rich in fats it can become rancid quickly
therefore whole grain rice is not very durable so to keep rice longer the
manufacturers remove the bran and the germ by a process called polishing this
is our typical white rice it is the remaining endosperm of the grain it
lasts longer and easy to chew it is rich in starch but it lacks most of the other
nutrients of the bran and the germ such as unsaturated fats proteins fibers
vitamins and minerals there is a way to make white rice more nutritious that is
parboiled rice it is made by boiling rice before the milling then the
nutrients in the bran gets diffused into the endosperm of the
white rice boiling also makes the rice bigger therefore small amounts are
enough to make you feel full this makes parboiled rice an excellent meal for
losing weight thanks for watching I hope you learned something I’ll be making
more videos about health and nutrition so I invite you to subscribe to this
