Is there a difference between minute brown rice and just plain ole brown rice? Part of my post workout consists of brown rice and it takes like 15 min to microwave vs. 5 minutes for minute rice. Does minute rice have a different GI rating?

Is it fresh brown rice?

Yeah. All natural rice.

The natural rice most likely isn't going to have all the added 'crap' that you get with the minute rice (preservatives).

I was wondering if they threw in a bunch of preservatives and what not. I guess I'll contine with the natural stuff. Thanks syn!

tt, minute rice is not full of preservatives. It is just precooked white rice that has been dehydrated (thus it only takes a minute to rehydrate.
Just the same i prefer the white rice.
