Rice is a popular cereal grain crop that's a staple food
for a large part of the world's population, especially in
East and South Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and the
West Indies. It is the grain with the second-highest worldwide
production, after maize (corn).
Rice is rich in nutrients and contains a number of vitamins
and minerals. It is an excellent source of complex carbohydratesthe
best source of energy. However, a lot of these nutrients are
lost during milling and polishing, which turns brown rice
into white rice by removing the outer rice husk and bran to
reveal the white grain. That is why brown rice has become
popular in recent years.
There are many varieties of rice for many purposes; the main
distinction is between:
- long-grain, which tends to remain intact after cooking
- medium-grain becomes more sticky and is used for sweet
dishes also for risotto in Italy and sushi
- and short-grain rice is often used for rice pudding
