More About Rice:
What is the Difference Between Brown and White Rice?
All rice is brown (or another color such as Red, Black, or Purple) at first– it is the milling process that determines whether rice is brown or white. When it comes to white rice, the husk, germ and bran are removed in the milling process. In contrast, only the husk is removed when producing brown rice– the whole grain, including the bran and germ, is left intact. Rice that is to be milled for white rice is harvested earlier than rice that is to remain brown. An earlier harvest ensures that the rice has a higher moisture content, which reduces breakage during milling.
At Lundberg Family Farms, they grow a majority of their rice for brown rice production. Because of this, they allow their rice to mature in the fields for a longer period of time to increase its flavor and improve its appearance. Brown rice is whole grain and contains significant amounts of B vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. To learn more about whole grains and the health benefits of eating brown rice, visit the Whole Grains Council website. https://wholegrainscouncil.org
*Made with 100% Organic ingredients, all of which are non-GMO and Gluten-free, these snacks contain a healthy serving of whole grains and are a nice snack for both adults and kids. And while I personally believe that young toddlers should only be given foods in their natural state (as opposed to cereals, chips, bars, etc)., there’s nothing wrong with giving a young child a couple chips every now and again, especially when they don’t contain anything artificial and do contain a nice variety of healthy ingredients.

Lundberg Family Farms traces its roots back to 1937, when Albert and Frances Lundberg moved to California from Nebraska. Albert had seen the ravages of the Dustbowl that resulted from poor soil management and short-sighted farming techniques. After moving the family to Northern California’s fertile Sacramento Valley, he impressed upon his four sons the need to care for the soil.
In the 1960’s, Albert’s four sons, Eldon, Wendell, Harlan and Homer saw the need to sell the rice they were growing directly to the public since it was being grown so differently from conventional rice. This gave consumers a choice in the rice they purchased and began the Lundberg Family Farms® brand.
Today, over 80 years later, the third and fourth generation Lundberg family members are still carrying on the family heritage by using eco-positive farming methods to produce wholesome, healthful rice products while improving and protecting the environment for generations to come.
As an early leader in organic farming, Lundberg Family Farms takes pride in their energy conservation and renewable energy, providing safe and fair working conditions, and many other practices that are environmentally and socially responsible. However, with one of their core values being continuous improvement, they know there is always more to do when it comes to sustainability and inspiring greater change beyond just themselves and is why their annual Sustainability Report chronicles their progress in reaching their sustainability goals.
