Brown rice is a source of many beneficial nutrients, including fibre, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B-6. The process that produces brown rice removes only the outermost layer, the hull, of the rice kernel and is the least damaging to its nutritional value.
Basmati is gluten-free and low in fat. It contains all eight essential amino acids, folic acid, and is very low in sodium and has no cholesterol.
Basmati has a low to medium glycaemic index, meaning that energy is released at a slower, steadier rate leading to a more balanced level of energy.
Like brown rice, red rice is higher in fibre than white rice and is rich in B vitamins, iron and calcium. The reddish colour is due to an antioxidant called anthocyanin which assists in the function of blood flow, muscle fatigue and vascular inflammation and eye and kidney function.
Traditional served to the nobility throughout Asian history, black rice is low in sugar and high in fibre and packed full of Vitamin E, iron and zinc. It also turns purple when cooked!
A South American seed from the spinach family. It is full of calcium, iron and vitamin B and E. A high magnesium content also helps regulate blood levels. It has a high protein content compared to wheat and is gluten free and Low GI.
BLACK SESAME SEEDS
Sesame seeds may be the oldest condiment known to man. Not only are sesame seeds a very good source of manganese and copper, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fibre.
Buckwheat has a unique triangular shape and despite its name, it is not related to wheat. Nutritionally similar to quinoa it contains significant amounts of all of the essential amino acids, has a low GI, high in fibre, is gluten free and is particularly high in niacin, which helps release energy from food.
This tiny "grain" is gluten-free, is high in fibre & protein and rich in B Vitamins (especially niacin, B6 & folic acid). It also contains calcium, iron & zinc. In fact, while it's often called a grain because of it's grain-like consistency, millet is actually a seed.
