Rice Cakes

I love rice cakes, but I just noticed that the package says 8 grams of whole grain brown rice per piece! I always eat around 3 or so. I had no idea it was whole grain brown rice. Is that bad to eat? Iím still new to figuring out what I can eat and not eat. Is there such a thing as regular white rice, rice cakes? Or are they all whole grain brown rice?

Thank you so much for your help.

Everyone is different but I got the impression that brown rice is supposed to be better

I've just looks at my packet of rice cakes and it says 29% wholegrain rice. Like Ron says
wholegrain is supposed to be better BUT some people with IBD can not tolerate fibre so stick to white rice,bread,pasta etc.So if you haven't had a problem before I would say go ahead and enjoy them.Welcome to the forum,why not tell us how you came to be here.We're all very interested in other folks symptoms,meds etc.

I believe they are all brown rice. That is what I've noticed on labels. I've become a recent eater of rice cakes. I've found they help improve my energy levels. That is so long as I don't eat to many. At least for now more than 3 in a day and I'll feel queazy to my stomach. I'm hoping to be able to eat more with out issue in the future.
