10 Oct ORGANIC BASMATI RICE
Organic Basmati Rice
Rice is the staple grain in the diet of half the world’s population, according to the International Rice Research Institute. When it comes to rice options, basmati rice in its whole-grain form may be one of the better choices. While there is a rice diet, there’s no basmati rice diet, but that doesn’t mean it can’t fit into any healthy diet plan.
Basmati rice is a long-grain rice with a distinct flavor. Compared to regular long-grain rice, basmati rice is lower in calories. A 1/4-cup serving of raw brown basmati rice has 150 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 33 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. The same serving of raw brown long-grain rice has 170 calories, 1 gram of fat, 36 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.
