2 – Brown rice and diabetes

Researchers have estimated that replacing 50 grams of white rice with the same amount of brown rice would lower risk of type 2 diabetes by 16%. Brown rice is superior to white rice when it comes to fiber content, minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals, as the polishing of brown rice removes almost all vitamins and minerals, and also strips away the majority of its fiber, which will help prevent diabetes by generating less of an increase in blood sugar levels after a meal.[2][3]
