Rice is a food staple throughout the world, and can be used in main dish recipes and side dish recipes. Rice is usually rinsed before cooking the grain to remove the excess starch. Rice that is produced in the United States is most often fortified with vitamins and minerals, and rinsing will result in a loss of nutrients. Rice may be rinsed repeatedly until the rinse water is clear to improve the texture and taste. Rice may also be soaked to decrease the cooking time, minimize exposure to high temperature, and reduce stickiness. For some rice varieties, soaking improves the texture of the cooked rice by increasing expansion of the grains. Rice may be soaked for thirty minutes up to several hours. Brown rice may be soaked in warm water for 20 hours to stimulate germination. This process, called germinated brown rice activates enzymes and enhances amino acids including gamma aminobutyric acid to improve the nutritional value of brown rice.
