When searching or preparing for a rice calories, more often than not, you will come across a list of calories count that show uncooked rice calories. What does uncooked rice means? Can we consume rice uncooked? It this information useful in preparing for a rice meal?
The answer is “No”. You do not eat rice uncooked, usually. Uncooked rice is not good for your digestion (you may even choke on it). Another fact, uncooked rice usually expands 3 to 4 times (in volume and weight) when cooked with water. Of course, the expansion increases if you add more water.
Counting cooked rice calories is usually the recommended way to prepare for your rice meal. Therefore the actual amount of cooked rice you will take is much lesser than uncooked rice.
