  1. Brown has a tiny bit more calories.

      1. Not only is brown rice better as far as vitamins, it is better in terms of fiber, too. (fiber is not a vitamin but an indigestible carbohydrate, I've read.)

        1. The nutritional benefits of any food item far outweigh any caloric downside. It's kind of like people that go on diets and drink diet coke instead of orange juice. Sure, the OJ has more calories, but in reality does that mean the diet coke is better for you? Nope.
