Some Vital Information about Rice

What is the best type of rice for health?

Adriana Oroz clarifies that the most advisable for the general population is to consume rice in its integral version for its greater wealth of nutrients. In addition, its higher fiber content satiates more and helps to regulate blood sugar levels better, so, she adds, it is interesting to control certain cardiovascular disorders (diabetes, insulin resistance, overweight …).

Of course, the Alimmenta expert clarifies that for some people who have certain digestive pathologies that lead them to tolerate fiber worse, it is recommended that they consume white rice instead of brown.

How to better combine rice

In order for the food to be nutritionally complete, the dietitian-nutritionist recommends combining rice, which is a source of carbohydrates, with a side dish or vegetable ration in the form of salad or cooked vegetables (wok, baked, stewed …) and with a serving of good quality proteins, such as legumes, eggs, nuts, fish or meat.

This distribution, as she explains, is known as the “plate method” and is a practical tool when it comes to distributing food on the plate so that it is complete, healthy and sufficient.

In the event that rice is consumed as a «paella», it is recommended to combine it as a single and main dish with a first course or starter of salad or vegetables.

Her advice when consuming rice is to combine it this way and generally encourage more dishes like “vegetables with rice” and not so much “rice with vegetables.”

The false myth: does it get fat if I eat it at night?

The premise is clear and, as the dietitian-nutritionist Mariana Álvarez also commented on pasta, Adriana Oroz affirms that no food as such fattens, it is consumed at the time it is consumed (morning, noon or night). However, the expert clarifies that, logically, it is not the same to add a handful of rice to the salad or combine it with some vegetables in the wok, than to make a single and large dish of rice with fried tomato at night. 

Is the rice much or little that I eat?

The ration can be variable, since individual needs must be taken into account. But to get an idea Adriana Oroz gives an example: if we do not take into account the proportion of a plate (1/4) under the “plate method”, a moderate portion could be between 50-60 grams of raw within a balanced diet.

The expert points out that rice is a cereal that is recommended to be consumed within a varied diet, since the variety always enriches nutritionally and emotionally. Thus, it is not that it is bad to eat rice every day, because it is an interesting cereal (especially whole grain), but if it is varied, much better.Uses of Rice Water for Hair.
