Brown rice is always a better option to use in place of white rice. Brown rice is the unmilled, whole grain version of rice. Brown rice has a mild, nutty flavor, and is more chewy and nutritious than white rice. Because Brown rice still has the bran and germ, which are removed to make white rice it is a healthier version of rice. Any rice that you will find, including long-grain, short-grain, or glutinous rice, can also be eaten as brown rice. When rice is processed, and the bran and germ are removed several of the vitamins and dietary minerals are lost in the process. Vitamins such as vitamin B1, vitamin B3, and iron are lost but are sometimes added back into the white rice making it enriched white rice. One mineral that is not added back to white rice is magnesium. When it comes to brown rice flour, you can purchase it at your grocery store or make it on your own. Brown rice flour is a simple recipe ingredient that can be made in a blender or food processor by processing it until it is the consistency of regular flour, and then used in place of flour for gluten-free recipes. For this gluten-free healthy oatmeal cookies recipe, brown rice flour is used in place of regular flour. Tapioca starch is also added to the gluten-free recipe as it adds structure to gluten-free baking. Tapioca starch also helps give baked good their chewy and crisp texture, especially in things like cookie and cake ideas. Potato starch is another popular ingredient that is often added in gluten-free baking as it is a natural way to add moistness to many baked goods.
