    Honestly, from a macronutrient perspective, theyíre so close that itís irrelevant. Itís literally less than a 15g difference in the carb to protein ratios for 300g of dry grain (~1050 kcals).

    It has quite a lot more of many micronutrients than rice as well. So really, if the cost difference isnít an issue for you, keep at it. That last one is a big part of why rice is so popular. When you can get 33,000 kcals of a carb source for a few dollars, itís hard to argue with.
