Wholegrain Rice - Brochure
Natureland brings you nature's purest produce from the lush-green paddy fields around the world. All eight varieties of Natureland Rice are organically grown and exclusively selected for the Middle Eastern consumer. These are wholegrain, unmilled rice, which means that only the outer husk is removed from the grain, and the bran sheathing and germ are intact. This makes wholegrain rice an excellent source of nutrients such as magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, thiamine, niacin, vitamin B6, manganese, and fiber.
Rice bran oil contains rich antioxidants and is recommended by The American Heart Association and The World Health Organization for lowering serum cholesterol levels. Studies have shown that rice bran helps increase blood circulation, reduce cancer risk, improve eyesight and memory, beautify skin and hair, and slow down aging. It is a rich source of tocotrienols , which is an antioxidant 6000 times stronger than vitamin E. By comparison, white rice loses 26% to 83% of its nutrients during milling.
