Rice is grown in more than 89 countries. Farmers from irrigated, upland, lowland, and the flood-prone areas across Asia are the major producers of rice. Rice in the US is pretty much expensive. Just like the one we always bought. A 25lb jasmine rice cost us $16.99/month.

Rice has the following nutritional benefits:
-Excellent source of carbohydrates
-Good energy source
-Low fat
-Low salt
-No cholesterol
-Low sugar
-No gluten
-No additives
-No preservatives

Below is a couple questions most American people ask me the most....
Q. Is rice eaten at every meal?
A. Where rice is the main item of the diet, it is frequently the basic ingredient of every meal. Asians cannot go without eating rice even for a single day. Pilipinos prefer to eat rice three times a day.

Q. Do people ever get bored eating the same thing all the time?
A. No. Because for some people, especially Pilipinos, rice is not only considered as the staple food, it is also our way of life. No other staple food could be compared to rice in terms of flavor, texture, and general satisfaction. Plus, it is inexpensive.

Nakilala na nga ang Thailand for their rice. Nakakalungkot lang isipin na ang mga scientists ng Thailand, Vietnam and other Asian countries ay sa Pilipinas lang nagaral ng rice culture sa IRRI sa Los Banos. Tapos tayo na nagpopropagate ng teknolohiyang iyan ay siya pang umaangkat ng bigas sa kanila. Ganid kasi ang mga namumuno sa atin. Imbes na palakasin ang rice production natin ay iniaasa na lang sa rice importation kasi multi million dollars ang kickback duon. Bahala na ang Diyos sa kanila. Thanks for the informative post. God bless you all always.
