I guess it helps that it looks pretty much like chocolate coated rice? This is how it looks like before washing and cooking:
low glycemic index of 55 compared to white rice's 87. This simply means that it will burn slower than white rice, which will keep you full while maintaining the calorie intake. It's pretty heavy so I eat very little of it and it takes a while before I go hungry again (unlike with white rice, which makes me hungry every 2 hours).
This is how it looks like when cooked:
I also tried it with some chicken soup when I was feeling under the weather.
This particular brand is Jordan Farms. You can read instructions for cooking at the back of the pack, but it's pretty much like cooking brown rice: soak for 30 minutes to overnight before cooking. The measurements are: 1 cup of rice = 2.5 cups of water. I use just 2 cups of water, though. It still turns out ok.
I guess he's talking about the aroma. Either way, this rice reminds me of the adage: "Once you go black, you never go back." (At least for me. Hahaha!)
