Anybody eat this stuff? It's the microwaveable Minute Rice.

I've been eating it and I don't think that there's much nutrition in it compared to other rice.

Anybody know a kind of rice that is quick to make? It's such a pain in the a$$ waiting for rice to boil for 30 min.

If it's brown, maybe.

All minute or quick cook rices are very high GI...

Lam, even 10 min brown rice? I just bought a box.

if it's the boil in the bag kind it's pretty high. to offset the high GI just consume like 1/2 cup plus another low GI carb like beans and some veggies. it's one way to change the overall glycemic response of a meal.

Ingredients say "precooked whole grain long rice"...it's the pour into a sauce pan and boil for 10 min. kind. Still high glycemic index? Thanks.

well no rice is truely low glycemic the diff. between whole grain and white is only like 5-10 on the index. I would still only use 1/2 a cup cooked and get the other carbs from a true low GI source like kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils or barley...
