Rice flour Nutrition-pros & cons

 

Rice Flour is good for us as it contains high content fiber and may protect your liver, but it lags some of the nutrients that other flours may contain. Rice flour can be used in place of wheat flour as a thickening paste in soups, sauces, and gravies. Finely milled rice can be found in both white rice and brown rice forms. It’s a staple food for Southeast Asia, Japan and southern India. 

Rice Flour is a great option for increasing demand for gluten-free food products. However, we must have the understanding that some foods lack nutritional value. There are some benefits (pros) of Rice flour like:-

  1. High in Fiber - Our body needs high dietary fiber to eliminate the waste like cholesterol and minimize the risk of diabetes, hypertension. Rice contains beneficial fiber that keeps blood sugar levels under control.
  2. Gluten Free – Rice flour is gluten-free and prevents many diseases like celiac and gluten intolerance.
  3. Healthy Liver Function – Rice flour helps in maintaining healthy functions of liver and essential component of the membrane as it contains choline. 

 

Limitations (cons) of Rice Flour:-

  1. Lesser Folate contains - The folate contains in wheat flour is more than that in rice flour. Our body needs a daily 14% of folate which is much satisfied by wheat flour rather than rice flour. Folate helps in removing homocysteine from our blood vessels and hence it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. It helps in development & growth of new cells during pregnancy period. 
  1. Fewer Phytonutrients - Rice flour contains fewer phytonutrients as compared to wheat flour. These phytonutrients are called as lignans which help in fighting cancer and balance levels of estrogen in the body. The foods that contain nutrient like lignans help in lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and reduce cholesterol levels.
