What are the potential health benefits of eating rice?
According to CPthairice.com, rice contains large amounts of high-value complex carbohydrates needed for the body as fuel.

When complex carbohydrates are slowly digested, it allows the body to efficiently make use of the energy that is slowly released over a period of time.

Rice contains the high quality proteins and all eight essential amino acids, which are necessary for building strong muscles. Additionally, it has no fat, no cholesterol and no sodium. Also, since it is non-allergenic and gluten free, rice is especially well-suited for people with special dietary needs.

How can cooked rice be stored?
The best way to store cooked rice so that its flavour is retained is to freeze it.

  1. Place enough rice to fill a rice bowl on a sheet of plastic wrap. Ensure that the rice is wrapped in a flat, fairly uniformly-shaped block that is not too thick. This ensures that heat is evenly distributed when you defrost the rice.
  2. When storing rice that has just been cooked, wrap the rice while it is still hot and place it in the freezer once it is cool to touch. The rice can be kept for about a month.
  3. When defrosting, place the rice in the microwave while it is still frozen.
