Uncooked White Rice
White rice is a type of milled rice that has had its husk, bran, and germ removed. This process removes most of the vitamins and minerals from the grain, leaving only the starchy endosperm. As a result, white rice is less nutritious than brown rice or other whole grain varieties.
However, it has a milder flavor and softer texture that some people prefer. In addition, white rice is easier to digest than brown rice and other grains. For these reasons, white rice is a popular staple food in many cultures around the world.
Garlic powder is made from dehydrated garlic that has been ground into a fine powder. When used in cooking, garlic powder provides a milder flavor than fresh garlic.
It can be added to spice rubs for meats, sprinkled on vegetables, or used to make Garlic bread.
