One of my favorite rices to cook and eat is white jasmine rice. Did I say I eat rice? Yes I did.
Jasmine rice is originally from Thailand and can be bought in brown jasmine, and white jasmine. Brown jasmine rice is rice that has not had the hull removed. Brown jasmine rice has had it's stalks picked and threshed in order to remove the rice from it's stalks. White jasmine rice is rice that has had it's husks removed, hence making it white jasmine rice. Brown jasmine rice does have more fiber, the white rice has none.
I do realize that we are amidst yet another low carb craze right now and I think it will crop up yet again after this one dies down. I've been in this industry for a long time and this is probably about the 3rd time I've seen this one surface.
I like my carbs, I eat them and I love them. I believe they are a contributing factor to my overall health. I also believe you get yourself into trouble when you eliminate ANY macronutrient. 45-65% of your diet should come from carbohydrates. As long as you stay away from grains that are quick cooking, and don't take less than 20 minutes to cook, you're golden.
