Calories in Rice
Rice is tied with corn as the most calorific major staple starch food. Each 100g of white rice contains 354 calories, most of which come from carbohydrates which make up 80% of rice’s weight. 1 cup of uncooked rice yields 885 calories which equates to 3715kJ.
Carbohydrates aside, rice is not a particularly nutritious food. Unless it has been artificially fortified with additional nutrients, rice contains significantly less protein and dietary fibre than either wheat or corn. There are negligible amounts of micronutrients in rice. What little non-carbohydrate nutrition there is in rice depends on the soil in which the rice is grown. Most rice will not provide any micronutrient in useful quantities.
