CONCLUSIONS AND SUGGESTIONS
  7. 7. CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Almost all humans do activities everyday. We will do activities if we have good energy to do them. We can get the good energy from healthy food pattern. Healthy food pattern can be arranged by ourselves. Healthy food is food that contains nutrients needed by the body. Healthy food has many contents which are good for our body such as carbohydrates, protein, minerals, water and others. The contents of carbohydrates are usually found in rice, corn, wheat flavour, and cassava while the contents of protein are usually found in vegetables and animals. Carbohydrates are the main energy source while the others are alternative energy source. We need to consume carbohydrates to produce energy. In Indonesia, the source of carbohydrate that we consumed is rice. Almost all people in the world know rice. In indonesia, rice becomes one of the staple foods. Rice is important so that it becomes the intake of energy source for our body. In indonesia, a famous type of rice consumed is white rice. Maybe some of us just know and eat white rice. So, we are not interested in trying other types of rice. Whereas, there is still other type of rice that contains same or even better nutrition than white rice such as brown rice. We often find that some of the instant baby foods are made from brown rice, but why we never think that brown rice is rarely consumed by adults? Meanwhile, white rice is the kind of rice that we always encounter both at home and restaurant.
  8. 8. Brown rice is actually much healthier than white rice. Maybe, we just think about the good taste of white rice rather than brown rice which is actually much healthier than white rice. Improving digestive system, lowering the risk of suffering diabetes, and preventing weight gain are three benefits of consuming brown rice.
  9. 9. CHAPTER II THE BENEFITS OF CONSUMING BROWN RICE A. OVERVIEW Rice is a part of the grain which has been separated from the chaff. One of the processes of harvesting is pounding the grain with mortar so that the chaff part will be peeled from the rice. In Biology, the part of rice consist of aleuron,endosperm, and embryos. There are two kinds of rice namely white rice and brown rice. White rice is rice which has white colour somewhat transparent because it has a bit of aleuron and the content of amylose generally about 20 %. Milling and bleaching process that makes brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of vitamin B3, 80% vitamin B1, vitamin B6 90%, 50% manganese and phosphorus, 60% iron, as well as all the fiber and essential fatty acids. In the end, all that remains is pure white rice which contains only carbohydrates. Actually rice is food that is rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and essential fatty acids. Besides, white rice has a glycemic index about of 70-87. The figure is relatively high glycemic index so it is not suitable for diabetics. Brown rice is rice which has brown colour with the content of aleuron genes which produce anthocyanin as a source of colour in brown rice. Brown rice is rice
  10. 10. that is not milled or semi-milled so that the epidermis of brown rice is not much wasted. Brown rice is proccesed in the traditional way by pulverization procces, it causes the epidermis of brown rice is not much lost. It should be known that the epidermis of rice contains nutrients that are important for our body, as the epidermis contains a lot of fiber and natural oils. Brown rice is type of rice that has variety of vitamins especially vitamin B and vitamin E. Although brown rice does not have smooth taste like white rice but brown rice is proven healthier because it has more benefits and it contains more nutrients than white rice such as vitamin B1, B6, and B12, fiber, selenium for increasing the immune system, glutathione peroxidase enzyme components that play an important role in the detoxification process in the liver, magnesium for metabolic processes and calcium which maintains bone health. Those nutriens are good for our body. Besides containing carbohydrates, fats, protein, fiber, and minerals, brown rice also contains anthocyanins and other nutrienst found in brown rice likes phosphorus, mangan , fitonutrien, and essential fatty acids. In a study of Harvard School of Public Health about 74.091 women for 12 years proven that they are not consuming fiber in daily life will more prone obesity. Fiber is also against constipation and also retards absorption of carbohydrates into the blood so that stabilize blood sugar levels. Besides, a diet rich in fiber can decrease the risk of gallstones.
  11. 11. B. THE BENEFITS OF CONSUMING BROWN RICE 1. Improving digestive system The digestive system is made up of a number of organs that must work together for proper digestion to take place. In order to enable this to happen, we must maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat the right foods in sufficient amount such as consuming brown rice. Brown rice is a complex carbohydrate that can metabolize, deliver energy and give sugars slowly. Brown rice is good for our body that is gives an important role in our digestion everyday. By consuming brown rice regularly, we can improve our overall health and make our digestive system work more efficiently. Brown rice has high fiber content so that it can cope with indigestion and constipation because the fiber can not dissolve in water which means that it is passed through the intestines without changing much. Insoluble fibers like brown rice help to move bulk through the intestines more easily and digestion becomes more comfortable. Brown rice also helps to remove any present toxins from the digestive system faster. For the example when breaking the fast we should eat food gradually. When we are fasting, the digestive system is resting so we need appetizers which is easy to digest. One of the menus that can be served during iftar or suhoor is brown rice. Brown rice is also a delicious addition in the recovery effort. Moreover, it is
  12. 12. also easy food to digest, so the stomach is not going to have hard work in digesting the food because the work is not too tough. 2. Lowering the risk of developing diabetes Diabetes mellitus or diabetes has become a global health problem. The number of patients with this disease continues to increase dramatically, including in Indonesia. One of the prevention efforts that can be done is setting a good food pattern by changing the type of food consumed effectively to control blood sugar levels. One of the ways is to replace white rice with brown rice because eating at least 5 servings of white rice a week results in the increasing risk of diabetes type 2 while eating brown rice as much as 2 or more servings a week can lower the risk of diabetes type 2. One serving is equal to 100 grams. In the other hand, diabetic food which we eat does not exceed the number of calories which needed everyday. It means that we have to calculate how many calories we need for daily activities carefully. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health said that brown rice is only slightly increase blood sugar levels in the body as compared to white rice. The results obtained from this study is to replacing one-third portion of white rice with brown rice can reduce about 16 percent of the risk of diabetes type 2. Recent publication of the Harvard researchers published in the Archives of Internal Medicine said that brown rice is a healthy choice for diabetics because it raises blood sugar slowly.
  13. 13. The knowledge about the benefits of brown rice for diabetes is not new, but until now the white rice is still the favorite of many people. A study of Harvard School of Public Health about 200,000 Americans revaled that American people who eat white rice have diabetes risk about 16 percent higher than american people who rarely ate rice. In the other hand, the diabetes risk dropped about 11 percent for American people who eat brown rice. Consumption of foods rich in fiber succeeded is reducing the risk of diabetes because it can lower blood sugar and insulin levels and reduce the risk of progression of poor glucose tolerance in diabetes type 2. Brown rice is also rich in fiber and produce energy in stages or also known as having a low glycemic index. The glycemic content in brown rice is under 55 which is good for diabetic patient. The experts revealed that 70 percent of the carbohydrates we met from brown rice due to high fiber content. Ordinary rice is milling process that had led to the loss of most of the fiber as well as vitamins and minerals. In fact, fiber can slow the entry of glucose into the blood because of the high fiber content of brown rice that does not increase blood sugar drastically. Besides being superior in fiber, brown rice also contains more vitamins and minerals than white rice. For example, brown rice is rich in vitamin B, magnesium, and iron for the body needs. 3. Preventing weight gain In order to adjust the habit of Indonesian people who are accustomed to eating rice, there appears a diet way with a lot of fiber that can keep us feeling full. The way
  14. 14. is by consuming brown rice instead of white rice because brown rice contains high fiber. So, that it can prevent the weight gain without feeling hungry. The advantage of this diet is the content of carbohydrate from brown rice, which has very high fiber. According to nutrition experts, generally the nutrient contents in brown rice such as protein, minerals, vitamins, and fats are actually rather similar to those in white rice.However, the differences are in the magnesium, vitamins B1 and fatty acid found in brown rice tend to be higher than those in white rice. The fiber content of brown rice is six times higher than it is in white rice. 100 grams of brown rice contains 1.8 grams of fiber, while 100 grams of rice white rice contains only 0.3 fiber. In addition to this diet, if we look at the levels of fiber content, this diet method can also be used for people who rarely or do not like vegetables to meet the needs of fiber. In brown rice, high fiber content will also make us not feel hungry easily. Brown rice is not only good for adults but also good for children and baby. The method of eating rich fiber of brown rice is not much studied. However, the response of the majority of the consumers of this method was quite effective diet that makes a more ideal body. Furthermore, it will be more effective to maintain our weight by doing sports activities or physical activity. It can make the impact to be outstanding.
  15. 15. Besides making weight tobe ideal, brown rice diet can make body healthier . Because this diet can lower levels of fat found in the blood and blood sugar. Thus, the habit of eating brown rice for diet can be applied as a healthy lifestyle.
  16. 16. CHAPTER III CONCLUSIONS AND SUGGESTIONS In indonesia, rice becomes one of the staple foods. Rice is important so that it becomes the intake of energy sources for our body. In indonesia, a famous type of rice consumed is white rice. There are still some types of rice that contain same or even better nutrition than white rice such as brown rice. Improving digestive system, lowering the risk of suffering diabetes, and preventing weight gain are three benefits of consuming brown rice. The first benefit is improving digestive system. Brown rice has high fiber content so that it can cope with indigestion and constipation because the fiber can not dissolve in water which means that it is passed through the intestines without changing much. Insoluble fibers like brown rice help move bulk through the intestines more easily and digestion becomes more comfortable. The second benefit is lowering the risk of suffering diabetes. Lowering the risk of suffering diabetes to replace white rice with brown rice because eating at least 5 servings of white rice a week results the increasing risk of diabetes type 2. While eating brown rice as much as 2 or more servings a week can lower the risk of diabetes type 2. One serving is equal to 100 grams. In the other hand, diabetic food which we eat does not exceed the number of calories needed everyday. It means that we have to be careful in calculating how many calories we need for daily activities.
  17. 17. The last is preventing weight gain. In brown rice, high fiber content will also make the feeling full in our stomatch so that we are not hungry easily. Furthermore it willl be more effective to maintain our weight by doing sports or physical activities. It can make the impact to be outstanding. So, I hope people can realize that brown rice gives benefits for people. I also suggest that diabetic patient and people who want to have ideal weight can consume brown rice. Brown rice is actually much healthier than white rice.The increase in the consumption level of brown rice can be reacted by doing socialization to the society that brown rice has many benefits for our health.
