O2 Media's Morning Show "The Balancing Act" Features: HINODE Rice by SunFoods
Pompano Beach, FL (PRBuzz.com) February 16, 2012 -- The USDA dietary guidelines suggest making half your grains whole. In addition to eating more whole grains, it is documented by the FDA that diets rich in whole grain foods, such as brown rice, and other plant foods low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Tune in to "The Balancing Act" February 23rd at 7:00 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television as Shaina Olmanson, a food blogger and spokesperson for HINODE, teaches viewers about whole grain rice.
Many people are just beginning to understand the health benefits of whole grains. The push for eating more nutritious food starts with eating whole food. Whole grain rice is just that - natural, whole grains with all the layers intact. The brown layer on the outside of rice contains all the vitamins and nutrients that whole grains are known for like Fiber, Iron, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Niacin (Vitamin B3) and Magnesium. These new products by HINODE are 100% whole grain rice with this natural brown layer intact. Also, HINODE whole grain brown rice is microwavable, making it perfect for families on the go.
"HINODE Rice joins The Balancing Act in an effort to educate consumers on the health benefits of whole grain rice. HINODE is committed to helping educate consumers on the benefits of eating whole grains. We encourage them to 'make half their grains whole' with two brand new products, HINODE Black Rice and HINODE Jasmine Brown Rice, that provide tasty and easy ways to bring whole grains to the table," explains John Koury, VP of Sales & Marketing at SunFoods, LLC.
Olmanson joins the show as part of "My Cuisine" Series, a segment dedicated to showcasing healthy and delicious foods for the whole family.
Doug Campbell, Founder and Executive VP of Programming for The Balancing Act, says "It's a pleasure to have Shaina Olmanson from HINODE on 'The Balancing Act' to discuss the health benefits of whole grains. With so many people looking for nutritious meals on the go, this is exactly the kind of product that our viewers are looking for."
