Thread: Raw Rice?
04-23-2012, 01:54 PM #1
Does anyone know if eating Raw Rice could help a hard gainer to gain weight?
1/4 Cup (raw) = 150 Calories = 3/4 Cup (cooked)
I'm trying to increase my intake of calorie dense foods. Rice seems like a good option, I like the serving size to calorie ratio and from what I can see it seems to have a better ratio than that of pasta and oats. I'm also eating more peanut butter and dried fruits... Raisins. Cooking rice alone (and not adding anything to it) shouldn't change the Nutritional Value but it does definitely increase the size due to water absorption.
Also what about raw eggs vs cooked eggs? I'm getting Conflicting info online...

Cook your rice and use brown rice. If you don't mind little fat increase then drink some milk.

i think if you eat raw rice they will all go in your intestines then expand from the water and cause severe pain.
eggs are likely to be infected with salmonella and can cause disease, but you can get pasteurized egg whites and drink them "raw"

Cook everything you eat, mate.

I don't think it makes any difference nutritionally. From a culinary perspective I ask: why?

Raw eggs versus cooked. Nutritionally no differentce. There is a good risk of salmonella poinsening from egges which are not cooked completely. This includes easy over, sunny side up or soft boiled. If you object is to lose weight, salmonella poinsoning is the way to go!

Raw and cooked eggs are different. Not all the protein in raw eggs are broken down by your body, cooked is the way to go.

You might grind the rice into a flour, but if you're gonna do that you may as well just use whole oats. They're more nutritionally dense and promote more of an even release than the spike you'd get from rice.

I've tried some raw brown rice in my shaker cup with some protein before....
.....seems to go out the way it goes in

Yeah i dont think our stomachs can break it down raw.

But not sure if it was ground down to a powder?

Your body can't adequately break down the proteins in raw egg anyway. It should at least be pasteurized.

The health community would tell you not to risk it. The only way to kill the salmonella is to cook the egg all the way through. That said, body builders ate raw eggs for years as a protien source, particularly in the day before protien powders and drinks became widely available. I have not heard of any of them
dieing from salmonella poisoning. Not sure how many got sick. As late as the 1980's Orange Julias chain of beverage producers mixed orange juice, raw eggs, and ice to make a tasty drink. Maybe too much salmonella poing lead to the chain's demise (pure speculation on my part).
Raw rice? I think I'll pass. . . . I doubt your body can break it down correctly.
Is started eating raw oats mixed in with everything. Seems to work aight. . . . .
