What is the phytic acid levels in popped(puffed) rice??

96440612cf0fcf366bf5ad8f776fca84
raydawg 0 · September 05, 2012 at 9:57 AM

If it's white rice, there shouldn't be much if any, as the antinutrients were in the part that was removed, so it's not very different from eating a load of sugar. It's possible, though I've never heard of puffed brown rice.

The Phytic Acid isn't really (on mass) sucking nutrients out of the food you're digesting, it's bound to the ones in the food already which makes them unavailable. Also most fish it's wrought with mercury just avoid long lived higher predator... (more)
