When only the outermost layer (husk) of rice is removed, brown rice is produced. To produce white rice, the next layers underneath the husk (bran and germ) are removed, leaving mostly the starchy endosperm.

Several vitamins and dietary minerals are lost in this removal and the subsequent polishing process e.g. vitamin B, iron, zinc and magnesium.

When the bran layer is removed to make white rice, the oil in the bran is also removed.

Worldwide there are more than 40,000 different varieties of rice, out of which, some may be extremely nutritious e.g. long corn brown rice differs significantly in nutrients value compared to long corn white rice of the same variety.
