Get Your B Vitamins
Betamore Fragrant Rice is naturally biosynthesized with 3% or 3,000mg of B1 vitamin. B1vitamin, also known as Thiamine, is most important for women of childbearing age because adequate intake helps prevent neural tube defects in babies. Vitamin B1 is an essential micro-nutrient that cannot be produced by the body. For babies and growing children, it plays an important role in maintaining a healthy nervous system and improving the cardiovascular functioning of the body. It also improves the body’s ability to withstand stress and is often called the “anti-stress” vitamin.
Betamore Fragrant Rice has a Glycemic Index (GI) of only 62 per 100g as certified by the Glycemic Index Research Unit of Temasek Polytechnic, Singapore. Other fragrant rice brands have more than 70 GI. Since Betamore Fragrant Rice has a lower glycemic index than other types of fragrant and white rice, it breaks down into glucose (sugar) much slower, preventing a rapid rise in blood sugar level after being ingested.
Low Amylose, Gluten-free
Starch is digested to glucose in 2 basic steps: First Amylose and Amylopectin; Second Maltose, maltotriose and limit dextrins. Amylose is more resistant to digestion than other starch molecules. Foods with high amylose may aggravate digestive problems, worsen certain inflammatory diseases and may contribute to gluten intolerance. Betamore Fragrant Rice contains only 13% amylose, making it easily digestible and is gluten-free.
