Experts answer the misunderstanding of "eating rice"


Rice is a must-have for the dining table in every common people's home. It is difficult for a clever woman to cook without rice. There is a lot of knowledge about choosing good rice. So, how to choose the various rice varieties on the market? Which kind of rice is the most nutritious? A reporter from Xinhua News Agency interviewed top domestic rice experts to answer the vague misunderstanding of "eating rice".
Misunderstanding 1: Choose rice only to look at the shape. Nowadays, in order to meet the needs of different consumers, there are more and more varieties of rice on the market. The reporter randomly interviewed several consumers in a supermarket in Sanya and found that, in addition to choosing well-known brands, many consumers use the appearance of rice. Come to buy rice.
In this regard, Xie Huaan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that the currently approved rice quality has national quality standards, and those that have reached the national quality level three or above are all high-quality rice, and everyone can buy with confidence. However, it is difficult for consumers to judge the quality of loose rice without packaging on the market. It is recommended to buy less and taste before buying.
Chen Wenfu, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that from the appearance, some rice will be shoddy, and the old rice will be oiled and polished. This kind of rice is dark in color, so consumers can wipe it several times with napkins. If there is nothing on the paper, it is basically good rice.
Misunderstanding 2: The higher the protein in rice, the better. In the stated nutritional content, does the higher the protein mean the richer the nutrition of rice? In this regard, Chen Wenfu said that the higher the protein, the better the rice. What we consume from rice is mainly carbohydrates rather than protein.
Liu Chunming, director of the Institute of Crop Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, said that generally speaking, a protein content of 8% to 10% is more appropriate. The higher the protein content, the worse the taste.
Misunderstanding 3: Imported rice is of better quality than domestic rice. At present, many middle- and high-income consumers in China have a higher demand for “eat well” on the basis of “eat well”. Many imported rice from Thailand, Vietnam and other countries are sought after and feel that it is more delicious and nutritious than Chinese rice. .
Yan Longan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that this is not absolute, and there is a misunderstanding of one-sided consumption. “There are a lot of Thai fragrant rice on the market that are faked from Chinese rice, but the aroma and taste are almost the same, and they can’t be eaten at all. Our country imports rice mainly because the price of foreign rice is low.” Yan Longan said, “The taste and nutrition are good for us. It is a relatively easy problem for scientists to solve. China can produce more green and high-quality rice on the basis of ensuring food security."
Misunderstanding 4: Only eat rice that tastes good. The reporter found in random interviews that most people use taste as the most important criterion when buying rice, and many people also believe that rice with good taste is also the most nutritious rice.
In this regard, Liu Chunming said that there is a misunderstanding. The quality of rice can be seen from two aspects. One is the taste. Generally, people in the north prefer to eat japonica rice, which is elastic; in many places in the south, they like to eat indica rice, which is relatively dry and firmer. Fried rice is better. This has nothing to do with nutrition.
From the perspective of nutritional quality, the vitamins and trace elements contained in rice mainly exist in the outermost layer. In fact, brown rice is the most nutritious. Most of the people eat polished rice now, a lot of nutrients are lost in this process, but the benefit is that it tastes good.
"In particular, women generally lack zinc, iron, calcium, and children generally lack vitamins. Therefore, more people should pay attention to the true nutritional quality rather than just the taste. If you drink purple rice or black rice porridge twice a week, the nutritional level will be very high. Balance." Liu Chunming said.
