Being Chinese-American, I grew up on white rice. And nothing but.
Black, brown, red and even bamboo-green rices were non-existent in my parents’ kitchen.
That’s why these other types intrigue me so much now. So when I had a chance to try samples of Planet Rice’s sprouted rices, I happily did so.
What is sprouted rice? Just what it sounds like: rice that has been soaked in water until the grains sprout ever so slightly.
The result is a softer texture. Not only that, but studies have shown that the sprouting increases the amount of fiber, B vitamins, and magnesium, as well as Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, an amino acid that can help lower anxiety and blood pressure, and afford deeper sleep and improved cardiovascular functions.
Who wouldn’t want more of that, right?
