Rice is a major energy source for millions of people around the world. It comes in many varieties — with jasmine and white rice being some of the most popular.
Though these two types of rice are quite similar, they have several notable differences.
All white rice is processed, which means that the husk (hard protective shell), bran (outer layer), and germ (inner core) have been removed
White jasmine rice is made this way and falls under the category of white rice.
While there are many different types of white rice, including basmati, arborio, jasmine, and originario, they are all very similar nutritionally.
