Why you should cook your rice with this 50kg bag of Ofada rice
How time flies? Who would have thought that about a decade after I took my first bite of grandma’s Ofada rice delicacy, I would grow to love it? Don’t get me wrong, I did like it the first time I tasted it but I didn’t believe the rice could be that good. This delicacy has become one of my family’s regular options. Ofada rice has become one of the go-tos when it comes to simple and special rice meals.
I have been, like many other Nigerians, used to the polished imported rice as it is one of the major staple food in Nigeria. I, and so many other Nigerians, have gotten used to the polished and nutrition-deprived rice that we forget how great and nutritious unpolished rice is. I understand the reason behind many people’s preference for imported polished rice. It is mainly because of the ease and simplicity of cooking the rice. However, that is not enough reason to eat the food of less nutritional value.
Before I go into the nutritional values you’ll get from eating this Ofada rice, I must tell you about the main bone of contention with many Ofada rice. That is stones! Yes, Ofada rice used to have stones. In previous years, I have had complaints from many Nigerians about having to pick the stones by themselves. This makes cooking the rice a tedious and time-consuming task. It is counterproductive and it requires paying special attention to picking the stones out of the rice. I wouldn’t go near Ofada before just because of stones. I have good news for you, our 50kg bags (and smaller bags) are destoned. Our bags of Ofada rice is completely stone free.
You and I know that Ofada rice is mainly produced in the southwest region of Nigeria. This Ofada rice is processed in such a way that it has little exposure to contaminants such as stones and other debris. Our quality control department ensures that no bag of Ofada rice leaves our production line with stone or any foreign contaminants. We not only check for stones but also look out for imperfections in the grains. I can boldly say that up to ninety percent of our rice grains are perfect! With such a high percentage, I recommend cooking your rice with our 50kg Ofada rice.
You shouldn’t have any issues with cooking Ofada rice since we have got our Ofada rice on par with imported rice. But, if that is not enough reason to consume locally-made rice, I believe the economic and nutritional value it brings to your table (literally and metaphorically) cannot be overemphasized. I wouldn’t bore you with all the intricacies of the results from the several pieces of research made by various scientists and scientific organizations. However, I would highlight some of their findings and how cooking with this Ofada rice can be of great benefit to you.
One of the best reasons to consider cooking with our 50kg Ofada rice is the nutritional value you get with every bag. While both white and brown rice contains similar levels of carbohydrate and the energy they produce are neck in neck, Ofada rice has more minerals and vitamins to give to your body. This might not be news to you as it is a widespread fact that brown rice has more nutritional value than white rice. However, our Ofada rice gives you a distinctive aroma like no other rice could. As a plus, the bran of the rice also augments the amount of fiber intake you get from every grain you cook.
Another reason you should cook your rice with our Ofada rice is the health benefit you get from eating it. Eating Ofada rice is one of the safest ways to eat rice for diabetic patients. It doesn’t have so much effect on your blood sugar level as white rice would because Ofada rice has a very low amount of glycemic acid. For non-diabetics, it is a better dietary option since the rice is not polished and it retains most of its vitamins, mineral, and fiber.
The presence of minerals and vitamins such as vitamins A, B1, B6, C, and E in Ofada rice makes it a good food that boosts the immune system. Hence, it helps your body to fight against diseases and illness. Minerals such as phosphorus, folate, zinc, and magnesium are essential to bone health. These minerals help promote and nourish healthy bones.
Ofada rice is not all about adding to your body, it also reduces the level of LDL cholesterol. The fibers of Ofada rice help lover this harmful substance which is responsible for excessive weight gain due to the body’s resistance to excessive weight gain. Ofada rice also has more antioxidants than white rice. These anti-oxidants are responsible for the removal of harmful radicals present in the body. Where they cannot be completely removed, they help to reduce the effect of these radicals in the body. These free radicals are unstable chemical compounds that are produced during metabolism and can lead to several health risks such as cell mutation.
Ofada rice contains phytonutrients and selenium which have been revealed to reduce the possibility of heart disease, breast, and colon cancer. The fiber in rice help speeds up the passage of cancer-causing compounds in the digestive system. The consumption of unpolished rice such as Ofada rice has also been demonstrated to raise the level of Enterolactone, which help to reduce the chances of breast cancer. Ofada rice also helps lower the probability of artery plaque accumulation. This helps the blood to flow freely around the body at moderate pressure.
Ofada rice is also good for you if you are trying to lose some weight. The high content of fiber helps you to lower your body fat. Ofada rice is also a healthy meal for babies as it is rich in nutrients needed for a child’s growth.
Conclusion: I know I could go on and on about the health benefits of Ofada rice, but I wouldn’t. I’ll rather leave you with this note: “Ofada rice is the best-valued rice you would find anywhere in the world and your decision to cook with this Ofada rice is the best you have made yet”.
