Ten varieties of the cereal

Rice is the most important staple food for much of the world's population, and it provides more than a fifth of the calories consumed by human beings. The most consumed variety of rice is white (peeled and polished). However, rice flour is becoming very popular as an alternative to gluten-free starch. Bran, oil, and starch are among a few of its milling byproducts.
