If this is what it is, it's extremely rare and is considered an infection. It seems unlikely that he would only react to rice and not other refined carbs, though.

I don't know what the requirements are in England, enrichment of white rice with B1, B3, and iron is required by law in the United States to replace some of the nutrients lost in the milling process. Rinsing rice also rinses away the enrichments.

Hmm, I didn't know that. Will look it up to see if the same applies here.

EDIT. As far as I can discover this doesn't apply in the UK. However, rice isn't the staple that it is in some countries (and we don't have much beriberi over here ;-) .)

On the other hand, "white" (ie not wholemeal/wholewheat) flour for bread making has to be enriched with iron, thiamin (Vitamin B1), nicotinic acid or nicotinamide (ie vitamin B3) and calcium carbonate.

I'm asking again - what else are you eating with the rice? Having protein with it will slow down digestion and reduce how quickly it raises blood sugar.
A glass of beer (Normally doesn't make me hung over in moderation) and soy sauce. It'll just be a meal of rice, or maybe some chicken on top. I'm leaning more towards moderation of all these things, and I'll try to mix in barley and wild rice, as mentioned above. :) ^^^

I think if I'm relying on starches like rice and potatoes for nutrients than I'm in trouble anyway. I'll add more broccoli into the mix. :D

Have you seen a doctor for this. You may have an allergic reaction to rice, or you may be diabetic.

While rinsing rice before cooking does remove some of the added nutrients, rinsing also removes contaminants, such as arsenic, and pesticides. Rice grown in certain parts of the world have arsenic in them, including rice grown anywhere in the U.S. where cotton farms were converted to rice farms. Chemicals used in protecting the cotton plants had arsenic in them, which was absorbed into the ground. When I eat rice, I eat brown rice, black rice, or wild rice. None of the are great for my blood sugar, but sometimes, ya just need some rice and butter, or gravy.

Hmm, maybe it's the soy sauce and not the rice?

That was my thought too, Kay.
