How much FIBRE in ready to heat rice?

You can now prepare rice in double-quick time, but not all pouches are equal on the fibre front

Fibre in food helps to fill us up, it’s good for digestion and helps prevent constipation. Good intakes are also linked to lower rates of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer.

Buying ready-to-heat rice saves time and helps you control portions. Most packs serve two, with a usual portion being around 110–140g.

Pouches vary in the amount of salt they contain, so check labels. As a rule, flavoured varieties tend to contain more salt – they may even be high in salt. Veetee Golden Vegetable Rice, for example, has a massive 2g per serving (that’s a third of the maximum recommended for a day).
