What is the difference between Organic Brown Basmati Rice and White Rice?
Basmati rice is commonly available in two varieties, white and brown, both having a nutty taste and a distinct smell. The difference between white and brown basmati rice is that white basmati rice is more processed, as the hull, bran, and germ are all removed whereas in brown basmati rice only the hull is removed. However, both varieties of basmati rice make for a delicious and healthy addition to the diet.
Brown organic basmati rice is long whole-grain rice having its bran coating intact for higher fiber, firm texture, and strong flavour. Brown rice has more calories from fat, and it does contain a few more grams of dietary fiber and potassium which can cause a feeling of fullness for longer as compared to white basmati rice. Unlike brown basmati rice, basmati rice doesn’t offer much fiber and offers a few essential amino acids that are metabolized well by carbohydrates and protein.
Organic brown basmati rice is considered a whole grain containing all three parts of the kernel, the germ, bran, and endosperm that offers a higher nutrient content. Besides, brown rice offers both soluble and insoluble fiber, where soluble fiber slows down digestion to maximize absorption whereas insoluble fiber promotes digestion, absorption, and reduces constipation.
Brown rice is a whole grain and is a low glycemic food that proves as a nutritious addition to people’s diet. Brown rice is a healthier choice compared to white rice because it doesn’t adversely contribute to health like type-2 diabetes. Brown rice can easily be substituted for white rice and is an easy swap for the majority of people. Though white basmati rice has less fiber because the outer shell has been removed but still this rice has a nice nutritional profile and easier digestibility.
Choosing white or brown basmati rice depends on an individual’s personal health and factors like cost, fiber content, digestibility, nutrients, and taste.
