NFA chief endorses eating brown rice

December 19, 2016

TAGBILARAN CITY, April 22 (PIA) –It took no less than the National Food Authority (NFA) administrator to start convincing Boholanos to go back to the basics and rethink of consuming the healthier option in rice.

Speaking while promoting and launching the brown rice program, NFA Administrator Atty. Rinan Dalisay said that what is believed to be inferior, low class, and shunned unpolished rice is in fact packed with more fiber, proteins, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins.

Brown rice, owing to its seemingly inferior texture, is popularly known as food for the poor.

But Philippine Rice Research Institute’s (PhilRice) advocacy campaign director Hazel Antonio said it is food for the rich, too.
