Washington: In a finding which may haveimplications for Asians, including Indians, whose staple foodis rice, scientists claim to have found that eating white ricecould increase one`s risk of developing type 2 diabetes whilethe brown variety can lower the risk of the disease.
Brown rice is superior to white rice when it comes tofibre content, minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals, and itoften does not generate as large an increase in blood sugarlevels after a meal. Milling and polishing brown rice removes most vitaminsand minerals. In addition, milling strips away most of itsfibre, which helps deter diabetes by slowing the rush of sugar(glucose) into the bloodstream. PTI
