The most important is to keep the sugar levels down to a minimum, especially if you use healthy natural sweeteners. Rice like any food can help get you fat or chubby but the best thing about rice is in it’s amount. Rice is real food with true health benefits, it is ideal work out food to pile on because it is a simple carb that burns easily and fuel efficiently, but you should know that it does convert to natural sugars, and that’s why you have to exercise and be physical active, or do not go over 2- 2.5 cups of rice. People who are not used to rice can find it pretty filling and treat it more as a side, a lot of Eastern countries may have a hard time restraining themselves to one cup a meal though.
When it comes to rice juice, we should mention that is a wonderful and refreshing, slightly sweet drink which really brings out the good flavor in rice. It is mild tasting and addictive, plus, has health benefits. It is best served chilled or quite hot (Like chilled a lot better). When it comes to its making, rice juice is typically made with white, chubby, glutinous rice, but if your health condition is so fragile that you have to limit gluten, sugar and/or carbs you may want to cut this drink with brown rice for it has twice the fiber of regular white rice and can help wash down the white rice. But it is recomended to not do that first, because the classic flavor will be lost.
White rice consists of around 90 per cent carbohydrate, 8 per cent protein and 2 percent fat, White rice is also packed with a ton of vitamins and miner als sucH as precious and vital magnesium, phosphorLts, manganese, selenium, iron, folic acid, thiamine and niacin which are part of the vitamin B family. It is low in fibei- though but when tur ned into a drink it passes quite easily ancl even helps digestion. Its plant fat content primar ily consists of omega-6 fatty acids which contain pro-inflamrnatory effects when overeaten fast without much physical activity,
The procedure of making rice juice starts with boiling 1 part rice to twice the amount of water required on the packaging directions. You can add a little more or less depending on your taste but be pretty generous on the water because the starchiness of white glutinous goes a long way. But do not fret regular white rice or other types of white rice is also fine, the white rice flavor is what makes this drink. After 10-14 minutes of boiling the rice you can fish it all out through a strainer before it gets fully cooked. You should know that you can use this rice for something else and leave some rice in the liquid as well. Add in your choice of sweetener although cane sugar, coconut sugar or a clean white sugar syrup is best to compliment and bring out that rice flavor. Taste first and adjust if it needs more water or sweetness, add ice and optional extra flavors like pandan lead thrown in the boiling process.
The Benefits of Drinking a Cup a Day
1.) Great Sick Drink
If you are feverishly, eye-rolling sick from something real uncomfortable like a bad flue or allergy attack than staying at home with a pitcher of rice juice will help keep water in. A similar color to coconut water with another distinct, mild taste rice juice also has the same effect in keeping water in letting you stay hydrated longer. Ideal for both the health conscious and the sickly, it is filling and nutrient-rich so patients with low appetites can still get calories in.
2.)A Natural Energy Drink
Packed with carbs, this drink will provide you with a lot of energy and a calm stomach. This is of course ideal for breakfast, but if you are sick you can drink this any time of the day. The huge, fat cushion of carbs that a rich variety and amount of vital mineral sit on are a power house combination your mitochondria will drool over. Quit going for cheap and strangely addictive, chemical-injected energy drinks and just make a big batch at home. Do not make too much rice juice though, chill it as much as possible and consume within 2-4 days because r ice is fragile to rot or ferment even further.
3.) Immune Booster and Cancer Preventive/Fighting
Especially if you choose much healthier varieties, like high-fiber white rice strains, they contain such an impressive spectrum of nutrients including antioxidants that even cancer cell growth is inhibited with regular consumption, along with regular exercise and a diet that is balanced.
4.)Friendly to your Tummy
Rice juice is indeed easier to digest than regular cooked rice fresh of the steamer. Extracting the boiled starch and little yet significant fiber content of the grains make a good digestion-stimulator. The thing that timulate the growth of good bacteria is the starches.
5.) One of the Most Gentle Diarrhea Treatments
As we mentioned above, the rice juice is good to your stomach but it does go as far as preventing or greatly easing diarrhea. It acts as a liquid clog because of the white grains of the starch, its sugar content will also help keep your blood sugar normal, and the best thing is that with its help you can have less headaches from malnourished. It is also an ideal stomach treatment for babies, young children and whomever who has these kinds of problems.
