Can you replace white rice during pregnancy with brown rice?

1 Answer:

Dear Sabrina,

It is said that in pregnancy, one of the most important substances is the presence of calories. The largest contributor of calories known to date is carbohydrates and one of its sources is rice. White rice and brown rice both provide calories, but they differ in the glycemic index. Brown rice has the advantage of a lower glycemic index, which causes a gradual increase in blood sugar levels and this is certainly good, especially for pregnant women with a tendency to suffer from gestational diabetes or diabetes during pregnancy. In addition, brown rice also has a high fiber content so that it helps smooth the digestion of pregnant women who are actually disturbed by the enlargement of the uterus during pregnancy. Therefore we can say that as long as it is consumed in reasonable portions, brown rice can be a good substitute for white rice. You can discuss this further with your gynecologist. Here we attach an article about food choices for pregnant women. May be useful.
