Patient discussion about RICE

Q. hey how about having brown rice in place of white or boiled rice…….?

A. Brown rice is a good carb, plus I personally think it tastes delicious.

Q. My friends guide me and say that it is not good to eat rice raw. I like eating raw rice a lot. I cannot stop eating. My friends guide me and say that it is not good to eat rice raw. They don’t have the reason to explain, when I ask. Can anyone explain?

A. See, Raw Rice eating is children’s habit. But it’s not unhealthy, at all. The rice swells in your stomach. If you eat in large amount, it may lead to discomfort. May be your stomach filled with raw rice had swollen and it may burst your stomach and it had happened to many. If you love so much better soak it in water, properly cook and have it. One thing is worth saying that, almost all raw food gives good nutrition and so the raw rice.
