Researchers reveal tips for cooking rice so that the calories can be reduced is to add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to boiled water. After that, cook 250 grams of rice for about 40 minutes.
After the rice is cooked, let it cool and put it in a closed container. Just put it in the fridge. Leave it for about 12 hours.
Researchers reveal this method can make rice contain resistant starch, a type of starch that is not digested in the small intestine. To note, the small intestine is where carbohydrates are metabolized into glucose and other simple sugars before being absorbed into the bloodstream.
Revealed by the owner of the TikTok Food Technologist (11/12/2020), this research related to rice cooking tips was carried out by Sudhair James involving 38 types of rice from Sri Lanka. He and his team were moved to do so because the obesity rate was getting higher.
“Since obesity is a growing health problem, especially in many developing countries, we wanted to find a food-based solution,” said lead researcher Sudhair A. James, who is at the College of Chemical Sciences, Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Sudhair also claims that these tips for cooking rice with coconut oil can reduce calories by 10-12 percent, but they are optimistic that this figure can be much higher in certain varieties of rice. The amount of calorie loss can even be up to 50-60 percent.
