How to Cook:
1:1 water ratio (1 cup of water to every 1 cup of rice). Cook for 20 to 25 minutes.
Note: For best results, soak rice in water for 1 hour before cooking.
Since it is unrefined, nutrients such as protein, calcium, thiamine, selenium, fiber, magnesium, and potassium remain as they are and are not stripped off.
It also contains antioxidants that help fight off damaging free radicals. It is also considered as whole grain, naturally good to prevent high cholesterol or lower buildup of plaque in the arteries thereby lowering the risk of heart disease.
This rice is also safe for people in a weight loss diet, for diabetics as it has a relatively low glycemic index, and for heart patients as it is rich in selenium and other heart-healthy nutrients.
Its fiber content is good for digestion, helps prevent colon cancer, and eliminates toxins from the body. It may help also in slowing down carbohydrates conversion into blood sugar.
Keeps well in a sealed container; in a cool, dry, and dark location.
