Rice is a kind of staple food in China. The cooking ways of rice are rather diverse. For example, people can cook rice soup or steam rice. In order to preserve the nutrients contained in rice, people can choose suitable tools, such as pressure cooker, electric cooker and microwave oven. When people cook rice, they should not add alkali into the cooker, as alkali can worsen the loss of vitamin B and affect the absorption of mineral substances inside the human body. When people rinse rice, they should use the cold water. Hot water and running water should be avoided. What’s more, people should not rinse rice for many times. As long as the mud and sands are removed, people should stop washing rice. The vitamins and inorganic salt contained in rice can be easily dissolved in water. If people rinse rice for a long time, the nutrients on the rice surface can be easily lost. Therefore, in order to protect these nutrients, hot water and running water should be prevented as far as possible. After rice is completely rinsed, people should put the raw rice into the cooking pan, or a kind of special nutrient called “riboflavin” can be seriously destroyed. In addition, protein and fat contained in rice can also be affected. The cold water used to rinse rice can also be used for various applications. For example, the water can be used to remove dirt from the furniture, door, windows and enameled ware. It can even remove the smell of paint from the furniture. The water can also be used for people to wash hands and clothes. The pachylosis caused by the chemical cleansing agents can be improved and the brilliance of the skin can be enhanced. The clothes washed in rice water can regain the brilliance. Some people even use the rice water to water the trees and flowers and raise the live stocks, as the abundant vitamins and mineral substances contained in rice can nourish the plants and animals. It can be seen that the roles played by the rice water are rather important in our daily life. In order to absorb the nutrients contained in rice, it is necessary for people to rinse rice in a right way. In order to save the resource, it is necessary for people to make full use of the rice water. The skills mentioned above can provide good models for people to refer to.

Image by Melinda Young Stuart growing in the "Crops of the World" section of the UC Botanical Garden. As some of you know, this is one of my favorite plants, since I got to know it in the mountains of western NC where it is still (sometimes) cultivated for the purpose of making "sweet sorghum syrup", aka "molasses", a country answer to a food sweetener where and when granulated sugar was not available. Some communities still hold 'sorghum festivals' where the canes of this plant are crushed in special mills to extract the clear juice (akin to sugar cane) and the result is boiled down in open pans until it becomes a rich, sweet brown syrup. I expect the seed heads and the spent canes were fed to the hogs, who would have appreciated the sweetness, too! In many parts of the world, the plant is grown for its seed heads. I believe the grain is something like the fifth most common cereal crop worldwide, after rice, wheat, etc. Thanks for looking. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorghum My album on the subject: www.flickr.com/photos/melystu/albums/72157674915250014
