Rice is considered one of the oldest cereal crops, the spread of which all over the world began from the East. In all Asian countries without exception, not a single meal is complete without rice, rice replaces bread in this region.

The popularity of rice is explained by the cheapness of this product, availability, low calorie content and useful properties. But the most important property of rice is its ability to quickly satisfy hunger. This is due to the high content of carbohydrates, which not only satisfy hunger and saturate the body, but also contribute to the improvement of human brain activity.

Due to the fact that rice is widespread throughout the planet, there are a huge number of its varieties. First of all, there are three main groups of rice according to the shape of its grains: round-grain, long-grain and medium-grain. Round grain rice is used for preparing sushi, cereals, medium grain for preparing main dishes with a soft consistency, and long grain for crumbly dishes.

The division of rice into groups is also based on its color. Allocate white rice, brown rice and black (wild) rice.

The largest group is white rice, which in turn is divided into polished and unpolished. Brown rice is white rice that has not gone through all the processing steps and has retained its color.

Black or wild rice has become very popular in recent years, in the era of healthy lifestyles and natural foods. Indeed, due to the fact that it is not processed, all useful substances are stored in it.

The nutritional value of rice is 330 kcal. If you do not eat rice with fatty sauces and in combination with meat, then it can be called a dietary product.

The uniqueness of rice lies in the fact that it can be used to prepare any kind of dishes, from sweet desserts to complex dishes such as Japanese sushi, Italian risotto, the preparation of Spanish paella requires certain knowledge and skills.
