Amount Per Serving
Always firm and fluffy, never sticky. Natural source of 6 essential nutrients, including niacin, thiamin, folate, and vitamin B6 (ordinary white rice qualifies only as a source of carbohydrates). Converted rices natural milling method transfers 80 percent of the nutrients from the husk and bran layers into the grain itself. Low glycemic index (GI); foods with a low GI cause a more gentle rise in blood sugar allowing the body to feel satisfied longer and have a more sustained source of energy. No transfats.
