    Good Points Mazzy Bolero. Considering the differences nutritionally between white rice and the others, what can we do as a public to get restaurants to evolve over to the better rices?

    Hi, peachpurple, eating rice a few times during the day, keeps me full longer than when I eat potatoes, boiled, or in a salad. I'm Asian too, I didn't know for how long. Thanks for that...

    ivanmarginal. I understand the importance of rice in many areas of the world, but honestly, couldn't these countries, in a modern world, evolve at least a portion of their rice consumption to the more nutritious varieties.
