One thought which has stuck into people's mind is that the polished rice is CLEAN & COSTLY so it is healthy. Actually it is a depleted source of vitamins and essential amino acids. In reality there are no nutrients in it and is one of the main reasons for higher incidence of diabetes. A rice grain with husk removed is most nutritious to consume. The removal of Husk exposes rice bran which is highly nutritious.The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fiber and essential fatty acids.
We call a produce (vegetables, fruits, cereals, milk, butter, coffee, tea or any consumables) Organic in nature when the farmer makes a proper use of his natural resources like preparing plant extracts for controlling pests, introducing insects to control pests, soil conservation techniques, water harvesting techniques, animal husbandry resulting in manure and in farm waste management- a chemical free & No Genetically Modified ecosystem.
Traditional oils like Coconut Oil/ sesame Oil/ Gingelly oil are extracted through large metal containers present a disadvantage of losing the essential nutrients due to high rise in temperatures generated in metal extractors; this oil when used for cooking has negative side effects on the body due to fatty acids in it, but when the oil extracted via traditional wood extractor (COLD PRESSING) it does not result in high temperatures and also retains essential nutrients and is healthy in its un refined form, Hence a need to rethink our oil usage depending on our lifestyle.
