The health benefits of Sant'Andrea whole grain rice

- Brown rice is a slow-release source of carbohydrates, which means it provides energy over a longer period of time than refined rice

The differences between Sant' Andrea whole grain rice and white rice
Sant' Andrea Whole Grain Rice differs from white rice in the way it is processed. Brown rice does not undergo the same refining process as white rice. This means that the brown rice grain retains its outer hull, which contains important nutrients such as fibre, vitamins and minerals. White rice, on the other hand, is refined to remove the hull and germ, which are the most nutritious parts of the grain. Brown rice is therefore considered to be healthier and more beneficial for the body than white rice. Sant'Andrea Whole Grain Rice also has a stronger flavour and a slightly crispier texture than white rice. If you want to choose a healthy and nutritious food, you can be sure to choose wholemeal products.
