Tips & Nutrition


Tips for rice

  • Did you know that only 100 gr. of (boiled) long grain parboiled rice (heat-moisture treatment) supplies your body with 12% of the recommended daily intake of niacin? Niacin is a vitamin B complex, which participates in the formation of two coenzymes in the body, necessary to release energy from food. Niacin deficiency may lead to fatigue and loss of memory, while a tremendous lack of it may cause pellagra, with symptoms of diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia.
  • Rice is very nutritional for athletes, amateurs and professionals! It plays an important role during any type of activity, providing the whole body with carbohydrates. One cup (160 gr. Boiled) of long grain rice offers the body 47 gr. of carbohydrates and energy!
  • Manganese, selenium and magnesium are three valuable nutrients “hidden” inside the brown rice in particularly notable quantities (till the moment to be consumed) and offer their beneficial values to the human body! These three elements play a positive role in bone health, our cardiovascular and nervous system!
  • It is remarkable that the oil found in rice’s husk lowers cholesterol.  A study published in the scientific journal namely “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” (Am J Clin Nutr.2005 Jan; 81 (1) :64-8.) showed that the oil of rice’s husk has substances that help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, without even affecting the vasoprotective HDL (good) cholesterol! Another reason therefore to include brown rice in your diet!
  • When talking about the real “whole grains” we are definitely talking about the brown rice! Dozens of scientifically based studies suggest that a high consumption of whole grains reduces the possibility of many degenerative diseases (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular, etc.) to occur, while at the same time contributes to keeping one’s weight at the desired levels. So … it’s about time you included brown rice in your diet and in a higher frequency!

Tips for pulses

  • Consumption of lentils is good for the heart and blood vessels. This is not only due to their rich content in soluble fibers, but also due to their high content in magnesium and folic acid. Folic Acid, a type B vitamin, and magnesium play a major role in cardiovascular health, as several studies indicate.
  • You have probably read a lot about natural fibers and tried to add them to your diet. In this case, beans are the answer! 200 gr. of cooked beans (of any kind) provide your body with more than 50% of the guideline daily amount in fibers!
  • Lentils are nothing less than a miracle food and have a low calorie output, which makes them (and all other pulses) ideal allies in your struggle for a healthy silhouette! Lentils have a low glycemic index, which means they help you retain your ideal levels of blood sugar and insulin. They are a nutritious food that offers large amounts of natural fibers! To all these unique characteristics they owe their leading role in any weight loss diet.
  • Are you looking for ways to control your appetite and lose weight? Try adding Chickpeas to your diet! A study by Australian scientists, that was published in Appetite magazine (Appetite, 2010 Apr; 54(2):282-8,) clearly indicated that a diet rich in chickpeas helps control the appetite and avoid the consumption of processed food. The consumption of this unique pulse predisposes the body for a more healthy diet in general.
  • Another scientific study confirmed recently the role of pulses in controlling cholesterol levels! Canadian scientists (Br J Nutr. 2012 Aug; 108) have shown that a daily consumption of two servings (150 gr) of pulses (like lentils, beans, fava, and chickpeas) contribute to reduction of cholesterol levels, protecting and heart and cardiovascular system.
