    basmati rice


    is basmati rice comparable to brown rice in nutritional quality?

    also, i think the mods should add a recipe section

    I am pretty sure they are comparable and I like the suggestion about having a recipe section.

    Pretty much everywhere I've read is that Basmati has a GI of 58 and Brown rice has a GI of 55 - it's very, very close to Brown rice.
