  • This is a little #repost prompted by a conversation I've just had.

So what's better? Brown Rice or white rice?

Because the other day I'm tucking into my white rice, broccoli and plain grilled chicken like a good bro should be, when Sue from accounts waltzes over and is like: "OMG! That white rice is processed carbs and will spike your insulin and stop your fat burning; not only that but it's high GI and contains no nutrients"

Does Sound familiar?

If you didn't guess already, this is 100% a load of codswallop.

Firstly, check the pic I took in the supermarket. White rice and Brown rice are almost identical from a calorie and macronutrient perspective. "But brown rice contains 1g MOAR protein and fibre"

For cereals?

That's the kind of difference that just doesn't make any meaningful difference in the real world.

So what about micro nutrients?

Brown HAS to be better right?

Well, head on over to the USDA nutrient database and compare them. Much like the false debate over white verses sweet potatoes, where one wins out the other compensates for with different micronutrients and again the differences are bordering on being irrelevant. 
Brown rice has more magnesium, phosporous and potassium

White rice has more Iron, Niacin and Folate.

Then you have to consider anti nutrients. Because brown rice contains the bran and germ intact it also contains phytates. Phytic acid prevents you absorbing some nutrients so you could argue you will get more mircronutrients from the white rice as a result! But bran is a source of fibre, so brown contains more my default.

As if that wasn't enough to convince you what about the GI?

Well white rice has a GI of 56

Brown rice clocks in at a GI of 55

1 whole point! Then you have to consider the fact that GI is only relevant if you eat that food in isolation. Protein, fibre and fat content of a meal all change the overall GI rating of the meal considerably. In summary, it just doesn't matter.

So white or brown?

Whichever you prefer.
