Rice (Oryza sativa) is a food staple and primary crop grown all over the world. There are many different types of rice including long-grain basmati, red rice, white rice, brown rice and glutinous rice, but they are not equal in terms of health benefits. Brown rice is a whole grain rice with the inedible outer hull removed. This kind of rice sheds its outer hull or husk but the bran and germ layer remain on, constituting the brown colour of rice. White rice is the same grain without the hull, the bran layer, and the cereal germ. Brown rice is a whole grain that is high in fiber and loaded with nutrients like manganese, selenium, and magnesium. It is rich in complex carbohydrates.

Most of its carbohydrates come from starches while some come from fiber. While compared to white rice, brown rice is lower in carbohydrates. Most of the rice is produced in Asia followed by America and Africa. Brown rice is normally cooked to be eaten as a source of carbohydrates for Asians. Brown rice has a chewier and nuttier texture although its cooking time is longer than white rice. Brown rice is a highly nutritious food. It is a whole grain that is relatively low in calories (216 calories per cup), high in fiber, gluten-free and can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. The USA Rice Federation notes that brown rice contains no trans fat or cholesterol. It has only trace amounts of fat and sodium. Brown rice has a low glycemic index which decreases insulin spikes as well as stabilizes glucose levels in the body.

Brown rice protein powder is rich in phytic acid, fiber, and polyphenols. It is a complex carbohydrate which helps slow down the release of sugars as compared to white rice. the fiber in brown rice helps lower cholesterol, moves waste through the digestive tract, promotes fullness, and may help prevent the formation of blood clots. Brown rice consists of manganese which will help to utilize the body fats. It also increases the activity of glutathione peroxidase, which raises the levels of HDL cholesterol in obese individuals. Brown rice consists of selenium which has been proven to decrease the chance of colon cancer. The high amount of fiber within the rice accelerates the removal of cancer-causing chemicals within the gastrointestinal tract and thus helps protect against colon cancer. Brown rice is full of antioxidants that protect them from free-radical damage. It also contains an enzyme, superoxide dismutase that protects the cells from oxidation damage. Comparative research showed that brown rice exhibits superior radical scavenging activity and prevents diseases caused by oxidation, like coronary heart diseases. Brown rice is good for the digestive system due to its high fiber content. The fiber encourages healthy bowel movements and, therefore can reduce bowel problems. This can prevent constipation.
