Rice is the perfect foundation for today's healthier eating. At approximately 10 cents per half-cup serving, rice is economical, easy to prepare andpairs well with other healthy foods such as vegetables, meat, seafood and soy foods for a delicious and nutritious meal!

The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend 6 one-ounce servings of grains daily (based on a 2,000-calorie diet), with half the servings coming from whole grains, such as brown rice, and the other half from whole or enriched grains like enriched white rice. Go to
