The regular rice available in market is polished and chemical treated. The crop is subjected to harmful chemicals right from seeding to harvesting. Even after harvesting hazardous chemicals like Boric Powder is used to preserve the rice. This makes the rice totally depleted in nutrients as harmful to health.
Swasthyashailee brings to you the Unpolished Rice. The health benefits of unpolished rice are immeasurable. Unpolished rice is a whole grain which translates into having a large amount of fiber in the grain. This is due to the fact that the whole grain contains all three components: bran, germ and endosperm.
On the other hand, when grain is processed, all that is left is the endosperm. When the endosperm is left intact, it generates all of the proteins; the bran contains approximately 80% of the minerals; and the germ contains vitamin E, minerals, unsaturated fats, antioxidant and phytochemicals which are chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, beans and other types of plant food. In addition, it has been ascertained that the antioxidant levels in whole grains are higher than in white rice.

Unpolished Rice is very safe for consumption even for diabetic people as it has high glycemic index.
