Rice: Which Kind Should You Eat

For a while, I was only eating brown rice, thinking it was the most nutritious, but is it? What about all the other kinds like jasmine, basmati, white rice, sushi rice, sweet rice (also called moshi or sticky rice), and arborio (for risotto). Depending on your dietary needs, you may want to choose one over the others. Take this quiz and see how they compare when it comes to calories, fiber, carbs, and protein.
