Ayush rice is very popular in our neighbouring state Kerala, and the entire coastal belt i.e Maharastra, Karnataka, Goa and Tamil Nadu. Various South Indian dishes like ‘idli’ and ‘appam’ are made from this rice. The matta rice is brown in colour and has a lot of health benefits. The matta rice that is not polished (outer layer or the husk is intact) is called ‘whole grain matta rice or ‘brown rice’. All the nutrients continue to remain in the unpolished rice, while it is lost in polished rice. Polishing removes all the nutrients, leaving behind only the carbohydrates, say experts. According to Ayurveda experts and physicians matta rice is very good for heart. It contains very less amount of fat and cholesterol, which improves the health of our heart. It helps in preventing blockage and clogging in arteries. Since matta rice has very less amount of calories, it is very good for preventing and controlling obesity. This rice is ideal for weight-loss diet.
