Eating red and brown rice makes you constipated?
A lot of people say eating brown rice, red rice and millets are more natural and healthier for kids, but my baby seems a bit constipated. Why is that?
CheckCheckCin: Brown rice and red rice are considered coarse grains and the outer skin of the rice is not removed. Due to the higher levels of fiber, a lot of people of people abandon white rice to go after this healthier option. But for adults with weaker spleen and stomach, the sudden increase in fiber can cause constipation, so the chance for children who don’t have fully developed digestive systems, it is even harder to digest. Millets are cool in nature and not suitable for daily consumption. Simple white rice is still the best main grain as it is mild in nature, can replenish vital energy and nourish qi.
