"I know this discussion is about brown rice, but Consumer's Union Magazine recently published a report showing high levels of arsenic in all rice, and esp. brown rice and brown rice syrup. I have cut way back on my rice consumption, which is not…"

"I cannot vouch for the grain Quinoa but we are big users of Quinoa pasta (in turquoise box). It is the one mixed with corn flour, not rice flour. While Quinoa pasta claims to have 38 grams of carbs for a 2 oz serving (weighed dry), we charge 55…"

"I was amazed at how good the cauliflower mashed were with cream cheese. totally different than what you expect. As for Quinoa, be careful. It has as many carbs as a cup of rice. So, from a BG standpoint, there is no difference between the two."

"I don't eat any rice any more. Spikes me, but if you love rice. cook the brown rice nearly twice as long as the white, or start some brown rice on to boil and cook about 20 minutes, then add some white rice and cook a further 15/20 minutes for…"
