While there may be thousands of different types of rice, basmati rice can be much more nutritious than many of the others. Here are a few of the health benefits you can get from eating basmati rice.

High Caloric Value

One of the reasons this strain of rice is so valued by developing nations is its caloric content. 200 grams of cooked basmati rice contains more than 200 calories, making them a great source of sustained energy.

Source of Vitamins

This kind of rice is very high in vitamins and nutrients compared to other kinds of rice. Niacin and thiamine are two nutrients commonly found in Basmati Rice. While these nutrients are uncommon, they aid in growing healthy nails and hair.

Carbs and Proteins

Various varieties of basmati including royal rice and the very popular 11-21 rice are good sources of carbohydrates. For instance, 200 grams containing about 45 grams of carbohydrates. The same quantity of basmati contains more than 4 grams of proteins.
