We all love white rice around here, especially with Asian food. My husband is always trying a tasty new Chinese or Thai dish and we always serve white rice with it, and every time I check out the nutrition information I complain that rice should have more fiber. But then I’m faced with the situation of serving a brown rice and the groans and disinterest from my kids (and my husband), and I have to admit that brown rice and Asian food just don’t go together.
Uncle Ben’s has heard my cries and created a Whole Grain WHITE rice with 4 grams of fiber per serving and the look and texture of white rice.

Recently. Mom Central asked me to try the new Uncle Ben’s rice and sent me some samples and some aprons for myself and to share with my friends and family.
Tonight, the kids and I were alone for dinner so we decided to give the new Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice a try along with our meal. I really like the size of the box, it has 2.5 servings in it which was just enough for the 3 of us (we had a tiny bit left over). The rice was easy to make, a small amount of water in a saucepan, boil and then simmer for 10 minutes and let it sit for an additional 5 minutes for the water to fully absorb. It smelled really good!
It tasted good too! The Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice wasn’t as white as traditional white rice, and it did have a somewhat whole grain flavor (which I actually prefer) but the texture was more like traditional white rice.
I think my son’s unprovoked statement while he was shoveling the rice in his mouth says it all.
He said, “I love this rice!”
And my daughter said “more rice, please” – TWICE.
We will definitely be choosing the Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice over traditional white rice from now on.
