Eat This Instead Brown Rice Vs. Grain Medley

March 30, 2009|By KATE SHATZKIN

When you're buying Uncle Ben's 90-second rice packs, it pays to read the fine print. The Whole Grain Brown version has just a trace of sodium, but if you go for the medley of brown and wild rice, which says in small type on the package that it's "perfectly seasoned with herbs and spices," you'll end up with 730 milligrams sodium per cup.
