Brown or cargo rice is a nutritious whole grain. Like all whole grains, it contains all three layers of the kernel, the bran, germ and endosperm .The complete milling and polishing process that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids. Because these fats, once exposed to air by the refining process, are highly susceptible to oxidation our company produces brown rice in small batches ensuring the freshness and quality of the nutrients. Brown rice takes longer to cook because the grain is surrounded with a layer of bran which inhibits the absorption of moisture during the cooking process. Has a nutty taste that differs from white rice and a chewable texture. Brown rice is an excellent way of incorporating vitamins, minerals and fiber to every day diet.
