Including rice cakes and corn cakes in your healthy eating plan is a low-fat and healthy way to fill yourself up without the added calories.
One rice cake supplies iron, a mineral necessary so your body can produce red blood cell. The grains used to make rice cakes add a small amount of fibre to the food.
When you get plenty of fibre in your diet, you are less likely to experience digestive problems and constipation. Plenty of fibre is also associated with a lower risk of developing diabetes or cardiovascular disease. Gluten also lurks in many other products including frozen vegetables in sauces, soy sauce, some foods made from ‘natural flavouring’ and vitamin and mineral supplements.
Corn Cakes are much like Rice cakes but have a more rustic and crunchier surface and offer similar nutritional factors as rice cakes such as: fibre, protein, vitamin B6, and is a good source of antioxidant carotenoids.
Bakali Rice cakes also offer a wide range of flavoured corn cakes for a healthier snacking experience.
