After Reading This You Will Never Throw Away The Rice Water Again

More energy, healthier skin and shiny hair are just some of the benefits that you will gain from this old Chinese recipe that is becoming increasingly popular in modern western civilization. You can get a healthy body and beautiful skin by only using two cheap ingredients: water and rice.


Method of preparation:

Maybe you have already heard that the water in which you washed the rice is rice-water, but that is not true.

You can use that water, but you will not get the same health effects as if you were using the original rice-water (which is obtained by boiling the rice in it).
It is recommended to put more water when preparing rice-water than you usually put when cooking rice for lunch.

The water in which rice has released some of its useful properties is the one you need.

You can drink it while it is hot or you can leave it to cool down and use it to wash your face or hair with it.

Health benefits:

  • Provides energy
  • Successfully prevents gastroenteritis
  • Excellent in preventing cancer
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Prevents and cures constipation

Cosmetic benefits:

  • If you wash your face with rice-water, your skin will be softer
  • It is an excellent tonic replacement
  • Assists in the closed pores on face
  • If you wash your hair with rice-water you will make it shinier and healthier.

          Let’s say if you’re making 2 cups of rice..instead of 4 cups of water add 10 cups of water..let the rice boil ..when you see rice is almost cooked but still little bit hard..dump the rice in a colander…remember to put a pot under the colander to collect the water..put the rice back in the pan in very low heat you can add little butter or oil..cover it and let sit for few minutes..this way you got low calories rice and healthy rice water

    eating rice in water is very common in South Korea. I am simply amazed that this As I am in hearing that eating meat with vegetables will actually help increase vitamin consumption. Maybe it seems that other parts of the world understand different nutritional aspects that the western part of the world is just now understanding. what a great time to be alive.

    I use to drink rice water as a child

    Cooked rice n water aka Kanji is a good healthy food cherised by our ancesters.

  10. Well the good stuff in the rice water is no longer in the rice!
    If you simply use polished white rice it is basically starch!
    So it should be brown rice (maybe parboiled rice would do?
    But with brown rice you would need naturally grown rice or you may find residues of some pesticides in the rice water!
    Just a few think to consider

  11. Joann

    Must it he cooked with the rice first?

    So let’s say I boil organic brown rice in more water than it says in the instructions, I save the extra water in the refrigerator and drink it a couple of times a day. Does it sound right so far? Does the cooked brown rice still have some nutrition left, is ok to eat it?
