Red rice is a wholegrain food and provides a source of fibre-rich complex carbohydrates to the diet. Carbohydrate foods are converted to glucose in the body providing energy to all cells including those of the brain. Complex carbohydrates are broken down slowly providing a steady release of glucose helping to keep you mentally alert throughout the day.
