What is the glycemic idex of brown rice vs white rice?

I really do not like brown rice but was told that it is better for me, how much better is it?

White rice and brown rice are both rice and both contain carbs, lots of it. However, brown rice is more of a grain than white rice, hence the brown coloring. The grain, which contains fiber content, allows the food to digest more slowly, like oatmeal. As a result, the carbs are "released" over a longer period which is better.

There is only a 10% percent difference between the two when it comes to the glycemic index. So, you are safe to eat either, however as with anything that you are eating if you eat in moderation then you should not worry about if you are not eating the right thing or enough for that matter.

There is a huge difference. Though they are both carbs, the fiber content of the brown rice is much higher.
