Rice - Parboiled vs. regular

Soup | Apr 19, 2009 09:14 AM

In college, I once bought minute/uncle ben's (I can't remember) rice. Made it according to directions and it was unedible (I grew up on kokuho brand rice). Yesterday, I bought a bag of parboiled rice out of curiousity.

What is the difference between parboiled rice and regular rice (flavor, texture, fiber, nutrition)?
Is uncle ben's coverted rice same as parboiled or is that a whole nother beast?
