Does brown rice raise your sugar?
Brown Rice Brown rice is classified as a complex carbohydrate. Complex carbohydrates, such as brown rice, millet, steel oats and legumes, take longer to digest. A longer digestion time prolongs your sense of fullness and helps keep your blood sugar levels within normal ranges. However, simple carbohydrates, including white rice, soda, candy and white flour, are digested faster and tend to increase blood sugar levels quickly. Furthermore, refined or processed carbohydrates, such as soda and white rice, have few other nutrients, which can decrease overall nutritional value. Less Sugar Release All carbohydrates cause an influx of glucose into your body. Brown rice provides a much lower sugar release when compared with other forms of rice. In fact, brown rice released 23.7 percent less sugar when compared with milled rice, according to a 2006 article published in the "International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition." By releasing less sugar, brown rice helps prevent high blood sugar levels. Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/472295-brown-rice-and-blood-sugar/#ixzz1mnm4jfkc
Asked in Nutrition, Rice
Is brown rice indigestible?
Brown rice is digestible as plain white rice is. The difference is in the nutrition. White rice is mostly carbs and starch. In brown rice you get a bit of fibers as well. Fibers make your digestive system work harder and even though the fibers as such do not contain nutrition to humans, they do help to condition our stomach and intestines. Brown rice also contain more minerals and vitamins than ordinary plain white. Brown rice is good for you :-)
Asked in Nutrition, Dog Care, Rice
Is white rice or brown rice healthier for dogs?
Brown rice is healthier for dogs (and humans) because it has higher levels of vitamins and minerals. White rice is created by taking brown rice and stripping away the outer layers (bran and germ). It is those layers that contain the vitamins and minerals - hence white rice is less nutritious (less healthy).
