Organic Brown Rice has many health benefits when compared to White Rice. In a study published in the "International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition", when participants ate brown rice they had lower after-meal blood-glucose levels than when they ate white rice, with a greater effect seen in participants with diabetes compared to healthy participants. This effect may be a result of higher levels of fiber, polyphenols, phytic acid and oils found in brown rice. Whole grains, like brown rice, may also lower your risk for heart disease, cancer, gastrointestinal problems and obesity.
