  • What are the differences between brown rice pasta and white rice pasta?

    The primary difference between brown rice pasta and white rice pasta is the type of rice used. Brown rice is the least processed form of rice. It has the bran layer, which gives this rice a chewier texture, the tan colour, and the nut-like flavour.

    White rice has the bran layers stripped off during the milling process, leaving a core comprised of mostly carbohydrates, making white rice inferior in the nutritional content. In fact, fibre is significantly lower in white rice, as are the oils and most of the Vitamin Bs and important minerals.
