Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, basmati is small, long-grained non-glutinous rice. Brown basmati, being less processed than white rice, retains its whole-grain nutritional value. Basmati has the highest content of all rice for amino acids and essential nutrients.
Basmati rice is known to have a lower glycemic index (GI) than regular brown rice. Low GI foods are digested slowly and absorbed gradually into the bloodstream, making you feel more energetic and full for a longer time. Choosing a diet with low GI may help prevent diabetes and reduce blood cholesterol.
Rice is also healthy for what it doesn’t contain: fat, cholesterol, sodium and gluten. According to Food Insight, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration permits manufacturers of foods containing at least 51 percent whole grains by weight, which are low in fat and cholesterol, to display a label claiming the product lowers risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
