  • Kaikuthal arisi over night soak pana thaevai illeengla? Fine or like Rava consistency have to grind the rice???6 months old baby ku kuduklangla?

  • You eat white rice with lentil this balance meal. Because in lentil have missed 1 amino acid and white rice missed fiber. Those are meal mix together you get balance meal. I eat every single day white rice and lentil I not face any health issues

  • Eating brown rice could be good for you if fermented. Otherwise white rice is healthier. Overall brown rice being healthier is all a myth at best. The only people who believe in brown rice is in the US etc where it is not eaten much. However Asia has 2 to 3 billion people who eat white rice 3 times a day and have few to no health problems. The last trip I made to the Philippines I heard of a case of a few getting Alzheimer’s (the first time I have heard of someone having Alzheimer’s there). I was told those people got books promoting brown rice etc. And followed it. Actually brown rice is brown because it is older than 4 or 5 months old (been stored in silos). In Asia when rice is harvested white rice is white. It only turns brown if it is stored long term. But the people eat the rice fresh instead. Asians will not eat brown rice, and if you want good health you want either. Asians are not fat, and Asians don’t have constipation problems. Constipation is caused by a lack of exercise and a lack of vegetables.

  • I love organic brown rice with onions, black beans, and just a tad of organic butter. It’s very inexpensive and a terrific side dish.

  • i really full after changing my diet from white to brown rice. And strangely, i feel happier and i don’t have any cravings. Strange, isn;t it?

  • Brown rice is really good for people who have diabetes due to its low Glycemic index value. Definitely better than white rice. Good video though.

  • I think of all those Asian countries which have had rice as their staple for millennia. Guess what? They consume white rice in the main, not brown. There must be a reason for that. If brown rice were so much healthier, surely that is what they would eat? Oh, and calling your channel “Authority Nutrition” does not make you an authority on anything. I could put up a channel called “Authority Finance” but that doesn’t mean I can do basic arithmetic.

  • Listen I eat white rice everyday, most people from my native land eat brown rice but, most of them are overweight. And I am still on the skinny side it all about portion control.

  • This video is proudly sponsored by brown rice and flour suppliers. Lol.

    If this is true my parents and my own family should be dead by now. We’ve each been eating at least 2 cups of white rice at least 3xday. I’m in my 40’s and no cancer, no diabetes, no blood pressure issues..

  • I eat brown rice adding vegetables into it and a little bit of salt(very less) it tastes Awesome ❤
    Just add mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, french beans, onions, bell peppers, chillies and cabbage into it.. You can even use a tsp of soy sauce.. You are good to go☺ just a small bowl of brown rice �� will keep your stomach fuller for longer.

  • I’m taking rolled oat daily in the morning..and snacking those cucumber,cherry tomatoes,grapes, blueberry and a month I lost 11.3kgs

  • Me abhi brown rice nahi Diya Hai mere bete ko. Wo 11 mnth ka Hai tho Kya uske liye ye rice thik rahega Kya isme koi side effects nahi Hai? Me abhi tak usko srf white rice hi di hun

  • rice is never eaten alone and plain, it is always one part of meal, u need to consider other parts of meal to make it complete nutrition meal, its bad that u didn’t mention this important point…even if u put brown rice and other unhealthy food with it then overall it will be bad food

  • Thank you for your video sir. I am new(ish!) to cooking rice and I am experimenting with long grain brown rice at the moment suplementing it with a mixture of vegetables. Perhaps the most important part of your message was to have a balanced diet? Psychologically at least I feel healthy but time will tell!
    Blessings and peace sir

  • Yeah rice is delicious has heck have you ever seen a white rice sauce slice of chicken in potato and also with rice I think it’s only exist in China or Hong Kong KFC

  • we Asians have another type of rice which can substitute for white/brown rice. watch this video to have healthy life.

  • Here in India..You will get everything with Chemicals and Modified hybrid..That too they Modifying Vegetables With half knowledge, copy paste from Developed countries like USA Russia..
    We don’t have Quality Machines and Equipments too…

    India is great country but sadly High population making it Everything under money earning Businesses..

  • My grandparents ate white rice 3-5 times a day and they died of old age. No cancer, no high blood pressure issues. I’m eating white rice 3-5/day as well for 42 years, my mom 62 and we have no disease at all like cancer, diabetes or blood pressure issues. And yes look at Japan, China, Korea, India, Thailand, Vietnam. The real culprits are refined sugar, processed foods and table salt.

  • Three questions
    Why brown rice is more expensive, if it is less processed/polished?
    Arsenic occurs in water basins in North & East India, where maximum rice cultivation is done. So how Arsenic free will be a packaged brown rice bought from Super Market or renowned brands?
    Any country is having any brown rice preferential policy?

  • Good video.
    I think probably that Arsenic and anti-nutrients are from pesticides, toxic substances that will kill a small bug but would produce Cancer and diseases in humans, so Big Pharma can sell some more. If you’re interested in a plant-based diet or Veganism:

  • I’ve eaten white rice all my life, love it. But decided to switch to wholegrain rice to see the difference. I felt alot less bloated and didn’t gain any weight, like I always have on white rice. This is probably why so many south Asians have poor health, because we are raised on white rice. East Asians on the other hand, have alot of vegetables with their white rice, so I think that balances the risks out more, as do their genetics.

  • There’s nothing wrong with white rice as long as it’s portioned correctly with some fiber filled veggies and a healthy protein source. The rice should only take up 1/4 of your plate or 1/3 at most, unless you’re extremely active and need the carbs. The biggest problem most cultures have is that they fill the entire plate with rice and put a few bits of protein on top with minimal or no veggies at all. You should be portioning your plate as follows;

    20%-25% = Starchy Carbs (Rice, Potato, Pasta, Bread etc…)
    40% = Fiberous Carbs (Vegetables)
    35%-40% = Healthy Proteins and Fats (Meat, Fish, Eggs, Tofu etc…)

    You can then adjust depending on your activity level and goals. However, this should be the baseline especially if your goal is to lose weight.

  • Hey! Idiots! Eat Organic brown rice. Harvard school of medicine published a study that stated Organic brown rice vs white rice is by far a healthyer food choice.
    Good enough for me. Peace

  • White rice has a soapy, polished taste! Brown rice has a nutty taste! Why ruin rice by making it white anyway, taking all the nutrients out? Go figure!

  • Brown rice is straight up disgusting and can cause allergic reactions such as rash which i often get when i eat the stuff. i mean i can eat brown rice but if i eat it a few days straight in a row, i start getting rash. With that said white rice all the way. It tastes better and u wont get allergic reactions if u eat it everyday. If you’re in athletic shape and do strenuous workouts then white rice is recommended for carbs. White rice is also very versatile. You can have it with: eggs, stir fry beef, chicken, or shrimp with veggies, salmon, beans,turkey meatballs with ranch, siracha hot sauce and parmesan cheese on top of it all, chicken nuggets, canned chili, canned tuna/sardines, curries, stews, and soups. Make sure you have siracha hot sauce and soy sauce if you’re going to eat white rice. If you’re taking the healthy approach, what the heck are you going to have with your stir fried chicken breast with veggies? bread? tortillas? corn on the cob? biscuts? lol. white rice all the way for health, taste and the variety of foods that you can eat it with.

  • Love the science base analysis on both Rices. Just randomly stumbled upon your Channel. Going to check out a few of the videos but most likely, you got yourself a new subscriber here

  • When looking at the research, are the test subjects in developing nations? Or are they in areas where the metabolic syndrome is more prominent? Just curious…

  • Thank you so much for this video. My wife got the stupid idea from somewhere that brown rice is just white rice treated to make it fluffy and brown somehow. Hopefully this video will put some sense in her.

  • first of all if you want to eat white rice wash the rice cook it and then cool the rice down for 12 hours and reheat when you want to eat it this will make it a resistant starch that is great for weight loss and diabetes.

  • Nice video but I can’t eat rice of any kind because rice raised my blood glucose to a high level. My advice to you all do NOT eat rice of any kind! Rice has a very high glycemic index it’s around 101!! It will jack up your blood glucose levels and will ultimately CAUSE Diabetes, I know because I ate rice every day and ended up becoming a life-long diabetic!!!

  • I love white rice. But I’m really gaining weight eating this. So I switched to brown rice it’s really good for lose weight. But for my cheat I always eat some white rice.

  • I never eat brown rice instead I only eat white rice and yet ai lost 7 stones of weight by running and eating everything in a balanced portion, thats what we need to do, say no to junk food, you want burgers make em at home, just stop eating deep fried food, try and use as less oil as possible, eat nuts and lowfat yogurt, chickpeas, drink plenty of water and excercise regularly, just keep it modrate otherwise you’ll get sick of it, just make a habit of healthy eating and living… Best of luck guys

  • Thanks for this video. What is your opinion on parboiled rice? I am trying to find reliable information on this and I’m conflicted. Is it a good compromise between brown and white rice?

  • I consume a mixture of brown, wild, basmati and red rice. I eat it once or twice a week.

  • I’m fat but the last 2 months I have only been eating brown rice instead of any other grain and I have lost almost 10 lbs already.

  • Everybody listen. The reason why you don’t like brown rice is that it is less soft than white rice. Cooking brown rice requires a lot of water and a longer time to make it softer. Thus, it will taste better if it is well cooked.

  • Buy organic Brown rice from good source. Not only Asians but also Americans who have a longevity used to eat whole grain ( brown rice, millets, quinoa, buckwheats etc…), beans, peas, green leafy vegetables, seaweed ( wakame, kelp etc…), small portion of wild caught fish, a little portion of miso, kimchi… This macrobiotic diet will provide us plenty of vitamins, minerals, probiotics, a good source of protein, lipid, and healthy carbohydrates and fibers to prevent many chronic diseases. I myself lost 25 lbs from eating these foods for 8 months and make me feel healthy everyday. I found a good article written by Verne Varona “ Real macrobiotics for cancer prevention and treatment “ good read for anyone looking for a healthy diet and free from chronic diseases.

  • Actually I have a question. My baby boy is 9months old. He will be 10 months old bfr Navratri. I wanted to know that what healthy snacks I can carry with me when I go in garba utsav. It’s a function of 10 days and I don’t want to give him outside food. It would be a public place so I would not be able to give him breastfeeding. It’s would be a period of 3 hrs. I need your help. I want sum healthy recipes which I can make in minutes and doesn’t get spoiled for 2-3hrs.

  • Oats are great also to reduce bad cholesterol levels.
    All these foods are great, but the worst enemies of our diet are salt and sugar. Limit the intake and you’ll lose weight fast and naturally.

  • Very nice recipes..will surely give them a try. Plz share some egg recipes for toddlers, how to introduce it to them & also how to include it in their daily diet.

  • I eat rice every day; white rice at lunch, and quality brown rice or red rice at dinner. It suits me just fine. I love brown rice. It may be an acquired taste. Luckily, I caught it a long time ago. I exercise 4X a week, don’t smoke, don’t drink, and eat what I know to be a well balanced diet all the time. So far, so good! ��

  • I wish I`d found this particular sooner! I would`ve lost 14 lbs years back. I did not change my very own diet program by any means or work out.

  • Take out all carbs diabetes is eliminated. Grains will not help to lose weight. Corn is bad and even some are GMO it’s fructose causes non alcoholic fattyliver.

  • Rice has arsenic. Brown rice has higher levels than white rice. I just had a heaping serving of brown rice, went to check it’s health benefits only to find out it has arsenic in it. Smh. Have to avoid rice although now. They’re killing us slowly. If you can grow your own food.

  • Me was about to eat white rice while watching this

    Me: dam it
    Also me: was going to make couscous for the next dinner

  • BRIGHT SIDE: One thing I don’t understand about this video is towards the beginning it says that brown rice is good for you but at 5:19 it says it’s bad for you, so what gives?

  • I was eating white rice and wheat almost daily and managed to lose 8 kg…
    I think it depends on the quantity you are in taking it..

  • Really great video..thanks for making them.
    One is said, better to avoid dairy products atleast until one yr of life..why r u using ghee in all the recipes?

  • Brown rice is CLEARLY healthier than white rice, and if you see any websites that claim otherwise, stay as far away from those sites as possible!!!

  • Funny how the japanese eating tice, the french eating standard wheat based french loaf and arabians eating cous cous as their staple food, do not become obese or remain slim and healthy till late age.

  • I already lost a lot of white
    Now I’m trying to gain weight and eat healthy.

    Didn’t eat that healthy today since I ate a bowl of chocolate fudge banana icecream..
    Smashed 4 oak farm fudge bars and half a banana in a bowl together.
    Tasted good,but now I’m freezing.

  • great vid. currently have 6 boxes of Near East couscous mix to replace rice. Plan to return back to grocery store and purchase quinoa. thanks..

  • I eat black rice, read that black rice are even more healthier than brown rice due to a strong antioxidant called anthocyanin, also consume red rice now and then, it also contains powerful antioxidants.

  • Hey thanks for the wise words, I been really thinking about going into the whole losing wheight and dieting latley. Should I do keeto? Do you have any advice?
    Some other people recomended me this blog but i don’t know if it is legit? As you seem kind of like an expert compared to me I would like to hear your opinion.

  • I eat 1/2 cup of brown rice everyday
    It doesn’t taste as good as basmati white rice
    Brown rice is supposedly healthier
    I make sure to rinse it twice with water to remove arsenic before I cook it
    Basmati taste better but no good for my body

  • People who dont eat rice usually says brown rice is better, because it has more to it. But people who have been eating rice for their whole life knows white rice is the best. Just imagine cow, pig, and fish. Do you really eat all of them? The answer is yes, but the more you eat, the more you pick only the good parts inside.

  • You need to do your research & don’t believe everything you read UNLESS it is backed up by facts. Go to these 2 links for a start into hundreds of factual ones about how whole grains & wheat, & high starch/carbs are needed for your health. The Wheat Belly book is not factual. You almost made a 100% factual video, but that little lie at the end undid the good.

  • I LOVE Quinoa!

    But I so want to try other sprouted grains like buckwheat and lentils adding them to salads or green juices. Just sounds yummy!
