Brown rice vs. white rice is one of the main food
debates today. Eating brown foods automatically makes your diet healthier, right?
So which brown foods matter the most?
Brown Sugar: No. Sugar is sugar. The major differences between turbinado sugar, otherwise known as “natural” or “raw” sugar, and white sugar are the size of crystals and the presence of molasses, which gives darker sugar its color. Otherwise they have about the same amount of calories and carbohydrates, says Jo-Anne Rizzotto, M.S., R.D., former education specialist at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
Brown Rice: Yes. “Unlike white rice, where nutrients are stripped away, brown rice still has the whole grain in one piece, so it’s full of fiber, vitamins and minerals,” says Rachel Brandeis, M.S., R.D., an Atlanta-based spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.
