Most people prefer the texture of white rice because it's fluffier, but brown rice is more nutritious.
Brown rice has more fiber than white rice -- about 3 1/2 grams of fiber per cup, while the same amount of white rice has less than one gram. It also contains more nutrients like magnesium, manganese, and zinc.
