Jamaica tea, also known as Roselle tea, is brewed from the dried petals of the hibiscus flower. We break down the nutritional content and answer whether or not sugar is naturally occurring in this ruby red drink.
I have read an article in Korean newspaper saying that brown rice is not good for you. I thought brown rice is much healthier than white (regular rice) is it true?
Below are the nutritional values of brown rice compared to enriched white rice for 100 grams cooked rice. Overall, the brown rice offers more of the nutrients that we need (fiber, magnesium, potassium, zinc) with slightly fewer calories. Because it is enriched, white rice does offer more folate and iron. Neither have Vitamin A, Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D, or cholesterol.
Nutrient values as per standard reference (non-branded) in the USDA Food Comparison Database, (release 28), some values rounded.
