One simple reason, because white rice is processed and brown rice is not.
You see, Brown rice is actually whole grain. It contains all parts of the grain, including the fibrous bran, the nutritious germ and the carb-rich endosperm. And these are the parts that contain all the nutrients and vitamins.
On the other hand, White rice has had the bran and germ removed, removing much of the fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. But because these are removed, white rice are much more fragrant when cooked.
So how can you enjoy a more fragrant and softer brown rice?
By cooking them into porridge. Here’s our recipe on how we do it. It’s a simple and easy to prepare recipe that works for breakfast and dinner.

Here’s a tip, if you are using slow cooker for this. Add less water than usual when making porridge, this is because slow cooker does not evaporate much of the water, thus causing the porridge to be more watery. Also if you are into those thick texture kind of porridge, put less water 🙂
