(a) By eating rice alone, we can fulfil the nutritional requirements of our body. False
Rice is a good source of carbohydrates but they supply all the nutrients to our body. Most grains, including rice, wheat, and oats, are also high in carbs and need to be limited or avoided on a low-carb diet. Along with proteins and fats, carbohydrates are one of three main nutrients found in foods and drinks.
- They help fuel your brain, kidneys, heart muscles, and central nervous system.
- Complex carbs in fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products are less likely to spike blood sugar than simple carbs (sugars).
- Carbohydrates are broken down to glucose which is used for energy by our body’s cells.
