Thanks for the information, knew there was a difference but appreciate the information.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "

Great question. First, rice can be either long grain or short grain, regardless of whether or not it is brown or white. Second, brown rice is close to its original state, meaning that once the rice is harvested, the hull is removed and is then ready for cooking. White rice goes a step further and it also has bran removed. It’s the bran in the rice that gives it the brown coloring. The long grains are more robust and cook up firmer and fuller. The important difference between long and short grain rice is that the long grains contain less starch in them. Our body converts starch to sugar, which isn’t good if you’re trying to lose weight or have diabetes. Brown rice has the highest amount of fiber out of all rices.

Here is a nice link to some interesting rice info:

As far as brown rice, white rice, long grain white rice, and yellow rice - I know brown rice is the best, but are the others bad healthwise?
Also, can anyone tell me what the difference between white and long grain white rice is? Is the long grain healthier?
