Half the world's people rely on rice as their staple food. Rice offers B vitamins and some minerals; its protein features a good balance of amino acids. Wild rice – not a true grain but the seed of a wild grass – supplies slightly more protein than brown rice, and is considerably lower in kilojoules.
It's not necessary or desirable to wash rice before or after you cook it; doing so will rinse away vitamins and minerals.
