Husk Pressure Steamed  rice has its fibres intact. They are not polished or refined. Its glycemic index is better than most wheat flours that are available in the market. In fact, its lower than even that of brown rice.

Husk Pressure Steamed rice is amongst the best foods that a person with diabetes can eat.

Husk Pressure Steamed rice, is a type of grain that is boiled in its husk before being dried again. It originates from brown rice that has been soaked and then subsequently pressure steamed.

If rice is put through a second step of processing to remove the bran, it becomes white rice. Unlike brown and white rice, the process for par boiled rice begins before the hull is removed. The complete grain of rice is soaked, steamed and dried, then the hull is removed to make parboiled rice. Parboiled means partially boiled and not polished. Brown Rice has the highest Arsenic Content therefore it is not a healthy choice. White rice is normal one where polishing is done in mill for more than one time.
When rice goes through the parboiling stage, it is basically under high levels of steam and heat. This forces the nutrients that are present in the bran to be absorbed into the germ and the endosperm.

During the drying stage, the bran falls off by itself. One of the nutrients present in parboiled rice is B Vitamins.


It is rich in niacin also known as nicotinic acid that helps the body to convert food to glucose that is used to produce energy. The B vitamins also aid in making neurotransmitters and hormones in the body. Even more, it gets rid of homocysteine, which is an amino acid and converts it to other useful substances.

The presence of too much homocysteine compromises the health of your heart and may put you at risk of heart diseases. By eating a cup of parboiled rice is equivalent to 23% of the daily-recommended intake.

Further, your body will also benefit by getting up to 19% of the daily Vitamin B6 intake. This is twice the amount you would normally get from eating a plate of normal white rice.


If you consume a cup of cooked parboiled rice, you will be getting 41 out of 130 grams of the daily-recommended carbohydrate intake. This is equivalent to a third of the required intake per day.

A cup of cooked parboiled rice provides 1.4 grams of fiber, which technically equates twice the amount that you will find in your white rice. Now the best thing about this rice variant is that it has a low GI score of just 38. Remember, that diabetics need to stick to meals that have a GI score of 70 and even less.

This score means that the inclusion of carbs in this meal can’t make your blood glucose go higher than the recommended level.


Now, we all know how minerals are important to the functional and operational activities of the body and its organs. 1 cup of parboiled rice will provide you with up to 3% of the recommended daily intake of minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and iron.

The zinc content is the highest as one serving potentially boosts your zinc intake by 0.58 Mgs. Diabetics are known to be naturally deficient in zinc and eating parboiled rice helps to supply this mineral.

Zinc helps in the formation of the structural profile of proteins that help to regulate DNA and it is also integral in the fighting of infections and bacteria.

Other Rice Types Allowed

Parboiled rice is not the only rice type that a diabetic can eat without having any serious implications on their health.

However, you need to keep in mind that it is one of the best due to the fact that the starch contained in the rice is highly gelatinized.

This allows your body to digest the rice at an easier and faster pace. While you can’t consume normal white rice that has a GI of 89, other types of rice that you can safely consume without spiking your blood sugar levels include: Jasmin, Black, Red Rice.
