New Type of Rice May Help Control Diabetes | Diabetes News Hound | January 7, 2010

Researchers at the Korea National Open Society say they have cultivated a new strain of rice that can reduce sugar levels and increase insulin levels in the blood, according to an article published in The Chosun IIBO.

The researchers, who conducted the study on rats, plan to register the rice next year with the Korea Seed and Variety Service. The researchers note that the rice has not been genetically altered or modified in any way so there shouldn’t be a problem with eating it.

The rice also proved to reduce the symptoms of atopic dermatitis.
