Do you struggle to get your kids or other members of your family to eat foods that are good for them? Some people do. For those of you that serve rice in your homes, Uncle Ben’s is making it a bit easier for you to serve foods that your family likes that have good nutritional value with their new Whole Grain White Rice.
Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice looks and tastes like regular white rice except it has 45g Whole Grains per Serving. The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend consuming 48g (or 3-oz. equivalents) of whole grains per day so this rice is most of that. Besides the grains, Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice is cholesterol free and low fat. It’s made with natural ingredients and contains no preservatives, artificial colors or MSG. It contains no saturated fat, 0g of trans fat and is a good source of fibe.
Note of interest. I wasn’t sure from looking at the box if this rice was gluten-free or not. A good number of Uncle Ben’s products are gluten-free. I called Uncle Ben’s and a nice rep named Glen told me they were not able to guarantee this product line was gluten-free.
The Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice is extremely easy to prepare. All I had to do was put it into a pot, add a little water and cook for ten minutes. That’s less time than it would take me to microwave rice! True to manufacturer’s word, the rice tasted no different then regular white rice. RB had no idea that it wasn’t just plain rice until I told him. It makes sense to eat this. I mean, if you’re eating rice any way, why not get a higher nutritional value out of it?
