Health Benefits of Jasmine Rice

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Jasmine rice is long-grain rice with a flowery scent and a sticky, soft texture. Because of its sweet and mild taste, it became a staple food in many parts of the world, despite being farmed mostly in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.

It's a little thicker and shorter than other rice and has a clinging feel that makes the jasmine rice ideal to eat with chopsticks. Because of the plant's natural aromatic chemicals, such as 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline, it has a distinct scent.

This compound may be found in a variety of foods including basmati rice and white bread. It makes the jasmine rice smell like heated buttered popcorn.

You can find jasmine rice in brown and white colors. Brown rice is considered to be a complete grain as it retains all parts of a rice grain, while in white rice, germ and bran are removed.

Red, black, and purple rice variants are also available, but they are less common.

Promotes Healthy Heart

Brown jasmine rice is a whole grain, which means it contains rice kernel's all parts. According to several studies, adding whole grains in your food might improve overall heart health.

If you eat a minimum of three whole grain servings per day, you may lower the chances of developing heart disease. Furthermore, recent evidence suggests that eating whole grains is linked to a reduced risk of stroke.

The fiber content of brown jasmine rice and white rice is another significant distinction. Brown rice has more fiber than white rice, which may help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, two significant risk factors causing heart disease.

Rich in Antioxidants

Antioxidants are substances that help protect against cell damage, reduce oxidative stress, and combat free radicals, which are abundant in jasmine rice's nutritional profile. Manganese, an important element is an antioxidant, which is crucial for maintaining good health and fighting illnesses, is abundant in each serving.

Certain rice varieties, such as purple, red, and black have antioxidants that may have more disease-fighting capabilities than other rice. Because of its high level of beneficial components, including phenolics, tocotrienol, oryzanol, and tocopherol, in 2014, a vitro research conducted in Thailand indicated that red jasmine rice might help reduce the growth of cancer cells.

Rich in Iron

Jasmine rice contains iron in abundance, containing more than 10 percent of your daily required value in one serving. Iron is important for a variety of metabolic processes in your body, which includes oxygen transport, red blood cells production, and DNA synthesis.

Anemia symptoms include weakness, exhaustion, and brittle nails and may result from iron deficiency. Increasing your iron intake and preventing this common disease may be as simple as eating iron-rich food.
