In Ingredient Spotlight by DeesLeave a Comment

Organic Brown Rice is a staple in Dee’s Cereal and a primary crop grown all over the world. Luckily for us, brown rice is one of the healthiest and most-studied types of rice.

Being a whole grain, brown rice is SUPER nutritious–packed with fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, thiamin, niacin vitamin B6, and manganese. It’s also gluten-free, relatively low in calories, contains no trans-fat or cholesterol, and has almost no fat or sodium. Not bad, right?
