Using Golden Rice creates one of those happy occasions when everybody at the table wins- the picky eater and the health-conscious mom.
Rice is mostly broken down into two distinct categories: white, which is loved by all, and brown, its often less-loved, healthy counterpart.
Not everybody is a fan of brown rice. The nutrition from brown comes from the bran and because of this it can be heavy for some and has a longer cooking time than white. But it is hard to easily dismiss the health benefits of choosing brown.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture*:
"Whole-grain brown rice contains 15 vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and iron—all nutrients the body needs to grow and develop normally. In addition to these essential nutrients, there are bioactive phytochemicals in rice, as well as in other whole grains, vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, and seeds..."
Our Golden Rice retains most of these nutrients, meaning it is the best of both worlds. A rice that cooks and tastes like white but with the health benefits of a whole grain.
This is your go-to variety for that #dinnerwin.
