Coconut oil; a useful digestive for rice

New research at a Sri Lankan university might hold the key to a possible means of targeting obesity.

This is by slightly changing the way we take in one of the world’s most popular forms of carbs, rice. It is said that rice provides 20 percent of the world’s total energy needs and this holds true for many Asian countries where it is prominent in dishes such as sushi and curry.

Basically, the key is to cook rice with a teaspoon of coconut oil in the water. Thereafter, one should pop it in the fridge for 12 hours. Once this process is done, the rice can be reheated for consumption. Putting it in the fridge helps against bacteria that find room temperature to be the ideal climate to spread.

Half of the carbohydrates in rice are indigestible by the human body and pass through the body without being metabolised. This solution seeks to change all that.
