Is Corn Vermicelli Safe For Daily Consumption?
good evening doctor,
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically vermicelli (both rice vermicelli and corn vermicelli) are both sources of carbohydrates (same as rice, pasta, noodles, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.). You may only consume corn vermicelli as a substitute for rice (not as an addition or a friend to eat rice), provided you keep paying attention to the amount of vermicelli you eat. Vermicelli in general is more dense calorie than rice (meaning the same weight, the number of calories in vermicelli more). Therefore you should pay more attention to the portion of your meal if you do not want to gain weight. Also note that cooking vermicelli (for example, making fried vermicelli or adding oil to vermicelli after boiling) can add calories to your body.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
