From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Red Cargo rice is a type of non-glutinous long grain rice that is similar to brown rice, in that it is unpolished. The color of the bran is red, purple, or maroon. The husks of the rice grains are removed during the milling process, retaining all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals intact in the bran layer and in the germ.[1]

  • ✪ Is Red Rice Good For Diabetes?
  • ✪ Lotus Foods Bhutanese Red Rice -


Hello, I'm Ty Mason from, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I'm going to answer the question, is red rice good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid) and other tips to better manage your blood sugar to avoid complications by clicking the link below. We have covered rice in the past, but that basically included brown and white rice. You can view that video, just search from our channel page “Rice and Diabetes.” Red rice is a bit different. Brown rice is the whole grain with just the first outer layer (husk or hull) removed through milling. It retains its fiber and germ which contains vital nutrients. White rice is brown rice that has been milled to remove the bran and much of the germ, reducing fiber and nutrient content drastically. Red rice has the hull still on it, or at least part of the hull. The redness is due to its high level of anthocyanin. According to Dr. Gargi Sharma, "Brown rice and red rice are quite similar when we talk about them on the nutritional front. Both are great sources of fibre, B vitamins, calcium, zinc and iron, manganese, selenium, magnesium and other nutrients. One thing that sets the red variety apart from its brown counterpart is it being enriched with antioxidants that can help fight damaging free radicals in our body." The culprit in rice that is difficult for the person with diabetes is carbohydrates. If you have diabetes, you know carbs and sugars are our enemy when it comes to maintaining healthy blood glucose levels. One cup of long grain brown rice contains 48 grams of carbs with only 3 of them coming from dietary fiber. The glycemic index of red rice is 55. This makes the glycemic load at 25. That is in the high GL category. So, is red rice good for diabetes? Not really. In moderate amounts it is ok to have. Moderation and portions being the key. Of all the rices, it is the one I would choose, but be careful. I hope this answered your question is red rice good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management book by clicking the link in the description box below. Let me know if you have any other diabetes related questions. Thank you I am Ty Mason

Health and nutritional benefits

Red rice is a good source of thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), fibre, iron and calcium. The flavor of cooked red cargo rice is generally more sweet and nutty, and the texture is more chewy than standard white polished rice. Red rice takes longer to cook than white rice, but not as long as brown rice. Soaking the rice in water for at least 30 minutes before cooking produces a softer texture.[2]


The term "cargo" originates from the idea that this type of rice is exported/transported by ship/sea in bulk to the importers/distributors who then package the rice in small 1 kg bags for the market, unlike white rice which is usually pre-packed by exporters into 5, 10 or 25 kg bags.
