The protein in rice does not contain all eight essential amino acids so it is not a good source of growth and repair for muscle and tissue. However if nuts or seeds are eaten in the same day or you have chicken with your rice, then rice is still a good source of protein along with calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, manganese and zinc. Rice is also rich in B vitamins and helpful to the nervous system as well as an aid to stopping diarrhea.
