Organic brown long grain rice preserves the germ intact with the bran layer that surrounds it, which gives it a light brown colour. This gives it a greater amount of fibre than white rice, which is one of the main differences between the two. Foods with fibre are ideal for purifying the organism.
It is estimated that 100 grams of cooked brown rice provide around 350 calories, practically the same as white rice, although with a higher overall nutritional value (more vitamins, minerals and fibre).
Organic brown rice is one of the few foods that contain all twelve essential amino acids for the body. The fat content of organic brown rice is very low.
It is advisable to soak long brown rice before cooking, as this shortens the cooking time considerably.
