RiceOryza sativa

A staple food in most of the world, Rice (Oryza sativa) was first eaten more than 10,000 years ago in China. From there is spread across Asia, then Europe and the Americas. Rice is such an important food that, in Chinese and Japanese, the word for “rice” is synonymous with “meal.” It traditionally was considered to be a “yang” tonic that promotes healthy digestion.

What is Rice Used For?

As a grain, most of the nutrition in Rice is contained in the hull, or the bran. Per 15 gram serving, this outermost part contains 2 g protein, 8 g carbohydrate and 15% of the Percent Daily Value for iron. Brown rice contains the bran and is therefore more nutritious than white, which has been polished to remove the outer layers.
