    Default Jasmine ( Thai ) Rice not good for you ?

    GI = 109
    Jasmine Rice
    GI = 59
    Basmati Rice
    Rice is a good food. It gives fibre and carbohydrates and important vitamins and minerals. Of great interest, however, is that there are large differences in the time taken to digest different rice and the time for glucose to enter the blood.
    Jasmine rice – a very common rice around the world – is digested extremely quickly and releases glucose into the blood very rapidly. For people with diabetes from the many Asian countries that eat this rice, it is terribly hard to change to a grainier, slower digesting rice when they are older – yet, this is what they have to do often because the ‘spikes’ from Jasmine rice make it difficult to control their blood glucose levels.
    Basmati rice is also a common rice around the world. This is digested much more slowly and releases glucose into the blood much more slowly. For people with diabetes, basmati rice is often a better choice. Whole grain rice are also very good.

    A program on TV a couple of weeks ago (cant remember the name) mentioned that you should always have some vegetables with white rice to help slow down the release of glucose.

    I cant remember us all dying young when we didnt know what we could and couldnt eat.
    It seems nowadays they almost invent a reason why not to eat or drink something.
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    Wow, glucose spikes, arsenic, and there I was worrying about a bit of food poisoning from eating cooked rice which might have been kept warm for too much time (I don't say kept hot or stored cold. I think those conditions safer)

    Herself has gone back to the city of angels for the moment so I'm doing my own cooking (mostly it is burning)

    Thank you Natty, I'm glad to know I should combine veg with my rice. I suppose microwavable chips don't count.

    My problem is that I am getting old . At 50 I must be halfway down the tunnel of life. The Big bright light is getting is getting closer. And my Career as an England striker still has not taken off in the way I would have liked. Cunning rather than speed is my watchword nowadays.
