Rice is a staple food for more than half of the world’s population. It has been cultivated for thousands of years. It has multiple types and they all have different nutrition values. White rice is the most common type of rice. It is known for its high glycemic index and low fibre content.

Making rice healthier and better for daily diet
• Pairing rice with fibre, protein and fats may help in reducing the release of glucose in the body. This will keep the blood glucose level under control.
• Try reducing the portions of carbohydrates. This can help in the controlled intake of high glycemic index foods.
• Replacing simple carbohydrates with complex carbohydrates may add up to better health as they are high in fibre which improves digestion.
• Try things like opting for long-grain white rice like basmati rice or brown rice and throwing away the starchy water while cooking.
• Pairing rice with egg curry or dal help in providing protein and a complete amino acid profile.

Rice has a high glycemic index which means it can cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. This increases the risk of diabetes in people who consume rice on a daily basis. One can implement the fibre> protein >complex carbohydrates food flow in their diet to improve the quality of the meals they consume and add to better well-being.
