In this video, I want to answer a question from someone who wanted to know which is healthier: rice or wheat. Neither rice or wheat is keto-friendly. But, I wanted to cover what would be healthier, just so you have the data.
• no hull, no bran, no germ (pure carbohydrate)
• Glycemic index: 77
• It's enriched with synthetic vitamins – B1, B2, B3, folic acid, iron
One of the problems with consuming white rice is you're at risk of potentially developing a condition called Beri Beri (vitamin B1 deficiency). This is a neurological disease that can create all sorts of problems with the nerves, pulse rate, memory, and blood sugars.
• Has no hull
• Has bran and germ (less refined)
• Glycemic index: 68
• It has the hull, the bran, and the germ
• It has a lot more nutrition
• Glycemic index: 52
• White flour glycemic index: 77—no nutrition, enriched with synthetic vitamins
• Whole wheat glycemic index: 72— has the bran, fiber, germ, carbohydrate
Wheat has more calcium, more B3, and zinc. Wheat has gluten, which many people are allergic or intolerant to. It also has phytic acid, lectins, and glyphosate.
Rice has less calcium but more folic acid. There's no gluten in rice. Brown rice and wild rice both have phytic acid. Rice also has lectins, and can even have arsenic.
Wild rice may be the healthiest option. But, if you're on the keto plan, which I recommend, then you shouldn't be consuming any rice.
