Although there are many varieties of salt to choose from, Sea Salt has larger crystals and is typically more flavorful than regular table salt. And that’s not the only difference. The harvesting of refined table salt often involves more processing. Unlike refined table salt, sea salt usually includes less processing, therefore, it retains more of the beneficial minerals and trace elements.
Organic whole grain brown rice
Brown rice is low-fat, low-sodium (these rice cakes are actually sodium and fat-free), and low on the glycemic index (GI). High GI foods are digested quickly and usually cause blood glucose levels to shoot up, while lower GI foods are absorbed and processed slower and cause a more gradual rise in overall glucose levels. Brown rice also contains niacin, also known as vitamin B3, which can help lower cholesterol, and selenium, which your body uses to make antioxidants. Last, and certainly not least, brown rice is full of manganese, which can help the body’s proper enzyme functioning and nutrient absorption.
Guilt and gluten-free
It is estimated that celiac disease affects one percent of people worldwide. That’s over 3 million Americans. It’s also estimated that over 2 million Americans are potentially undiagnosed. Though the likelihood of developing this digestive and autoimmune disorder is relatively low, the symptoms for the affected by the disease can be severe.
For those not affected by gluten, reducing the amount of carbs you consume in general can be beneficial. (Our rice cakes have 8g of total carbohydrates per serving) Studies have shown a relationship between a moderately low-carbohydrate diet and improved heart health, and that a low-carbohydrate diet may help people lose weight more quickly than those on a low-fat diet. So whether you’re gluten-intolerant or living a gluten-free lifestyle, you can enjoy these rice cakes without the guilt.
