Nutrition profiles of different colored rice: A review

Author(s):

B Krishna Veni

Abstract:
Rice is the most important cereal crops and staple food of over half of the world’s population. As the primary dietary source of carbohydrate in these populations, rice plays an important role in meeting energy requirements and nutrient intake. In human nutrition, starch plays an important role in supplying metabolic energy which enables the body to perform multitude of functions. Recent studies suggest that high consumption of rice accelerates the development of diabetes. With sharp increase in life-style related health problems, scientists are looking at quality traits other than carbohydrates, proteins and fat in food stuffs (primary metabolites). As the consumers become more health conscious and more aware of the benefits of functional foods, diets containing bio-active compounds (secondary metabolites) such as antioxidants have received greater attention.
