Rice is full of es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents like iron and is a good source of com­plex car­bo­hy­drates. Rice is safe for those bat­tling di­a­betes as the starch present in it has very low car­bo­hy­drate con­tent as com­pared to other starchy foods. It is one of the very few foods that’s free of any preser­va­tives. The re­sis­tant starch in rice pro­motes healthy bac­te­ria and reg­u­lates bowel move­ment. If con­sumed in mod­er­a­tion, daily, it helps the body fight sev­eral dis­eases. Brown rice is rich in fi­bre and pre­vents the for­ma­tion of can­cer­ous cells in the body. With its low sodium con­tent, rice also helps in con­trol­ling blood pres­sure.
