Is Rice Included In Vegetable Protein?
Good morning doctor, I want to ask. What I know is that rice belongs to the carbohydrate group, but there are some who say that rice also enters into vegetable protein … is that true? Explanation please. Thank you
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Food sources are divided into several sources of nutrients which include carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Eating foods that contain a complete source of nutrition is important for maintaining a healthy body. The following are examples of these main nutritional sources:
carbohydrate is a chemical compound that has elements of carbon (C), hydrogen (H), and oxygen (O), for example: rice, cereals, bread, tubers, potatoes, pasta. Foods that contain sugar such as honey, fruits, and some fruits are also a source of carbohydrates, as well as milk (a source of lactose, which is a class of carbohydrates)
protein, consisting of animal protein (milk, cheese, yogurt, chicken, red meat, fish) and vegetable protein (nuts, tofu, tempeh, wheat)
fat, can be divided into saturated fat and unsaturated fat. Examples of food sources: meat, milk, cheese, vegetable oil, peanuts, avocados, soybeans
Rice is not included in vegetable protein. Apart from being a source of energy, consuming foods with balanced nutrition can meet the needs of the right calories and prevent the risk of certain diseases. Therefore, make it a habit to always consume food with the nutritional intake mentioned above in a balanced way.
Hopefully this information is useful.
