Brown Rice-Beyond the Color Reviving a Lost Health Food - A Review by P. Dinesh Babu, R.S. Subhasree, R. Bhakyaraj and R. Vidhyalakshmi

White food, better known as refined carbohydrates was once a delicacy affordable only to the financially wealthy. However, financial wealth does not equate to a wealth of health.

Whole wheat flour left in sacks for long periods of time cause bugs to appear within it. In their natural form, whole grains contain natural nutrients vital to our health.
