You can be from the North or South of India but rice is a staple food consumed by most in Asian countries like ours, and this is a query we receive on a regular basis. “Will eating rice make me fat?” “Is brown rice better than white rice?” When it comes to the difference between the two, white rice has its nutrients mostly stripped down whereas brown rice has and retains nutrients. Here is the nutritional information of the two per 100 g.
As you can observe, the differences between the two aren’t particularly significant. There are various studies to support you can lose weight while consuming white rice as well but in most cases lesser than while consuming brown rice.
But it is important to note that these studies are conducted in labs and conditions in such labs can only be applied to labs, not real life – many other factors come into play when we take the case of real life.
