Can someone explain me what th benefits are of the different types of rice?
Say the shop has wild, brown and wholegrain rice - which ones would be healthiest to choose?

    The benfits of choosing to eat none of the above would be saving your money and not having to eat riceb ut, that wasn't really what you were after, was it? lol

    White - quick and easy to cook, tastes nice and is easy to fry. Bugger all nutrition so if it's a staple you may go batty by the time you are 60.

    Brown - takes at least 30 minutes to cook and is firm and kind of nutty. It can make delicious risottos that are a lot more healty than the versions made with Arborio or Carnaroli. It contains lots of nutrients, low GI carbs, fibre etc so it's a good staple.

    I have brown rice that only takes 20 mins to cook, it depends on the brand for some reason. I also have a packet that is supposed to take 40 mins but it's usually ready after 30
