An article from the Independent in Puerto Rico shows how the nutritional value of rice is so huge, it can be considered the most popular food in the island.
The article shows how a single gram of rice can have an estimated nutritional value (NVP) of 4,400 calories, or more than 100 calories per pound of rice.
The average price of rice in Puerto Rican grocery stores is US$3.50 per kilogram.
But the article also shows how that is far less than the nutritional cost of rice: 3,000 to 5,000 calorific units (calories) per gram.
That means that rice can be eaten for about a single meal.
The NVP of rice varies from 1,000 (a gram of ground rice) to 1,400 (a kilogram of rice).
And the NVP can also vary depending on the type of rice you eat.
For example, if you eat a large amount of white rice, then you will get more calories.
But it is important to remember that the NVA is a relative measure of how well the rice is cooked.
If the rice isn’t cooked to the correct temperature, then the NVAs can be a misleading number.
A quick comparison of the nutritional and NVA of rice, rice flour, rice milk and rice noodles.
Source: Independent article in Puerto Ricans rice calories 4,100 calories per kilo of rice articleThe NVP (calorie value) of rice depends on the cooking method and how it is cooked, the nutritional content of the rice, the type and amount of rice and its availability.
In a previous article from The Independent in 2015, we showed how the NVEA (Nuts and Vegetables Energy Content) of white flour, white rice and white rice milk were more important than the NVRA (Nutritional Value of Rice).
The NVA (nutrient value) was based on the amount of fat in a kilogram, which is often underestimated.
We also compared the NVM to the NVDI (Nutrient Value of Vegetables and Fruit) and found that the latter can be used to assess the nutritional quality of food.
Rice flour and rice milk have a higher NVA than white flour and white sugar.
A kilogram (gram) of fresh white rice is equal to 1.9 kilogram per kilos of rice flour.
A 1kg (2.8 pound) kilogram is equal in weight to 1 kilogram 1 gram of white sugar, or 4 calories.
The nutritional value per gram of flour and sugar can be calculated by dividing the nutritional energy of the grain by its weight.
A kilogram in 1 gram is equal of 4 calories in 1 kilo.
So, if a 1kg kilogram white flour has a NVP value of 2,816, or 1,800 calories per 100g, then a gram of 1.8kg white rice has a value of 438 calories.
A gram of sugar is equal, or equivalent to about 1 calorie, of 1 gram in a gram, or about 4 calories per 1g.
A pound of sugar, the equivalent of 2 calories, is equal or equivalent of about 1 gram, 1.5 calories or about 3 calories per milligram.
The NVA and NVP values for rice can also be measured in terms of the nutrient content of its grain.
If rice is mixed with other grains, then it can have a different nutrient value than a grain that is just plain white.
A small amount of sugar (less than 2%) in a grain has a nutritional value that is not the same as the total amount of other ingredients in the grain.
A grain that contains a large number of small grains has a smaller nutritional value than the total grain weight, so it can carry a larger number of nutrients than other grains.
A few of the nutrients in rice have higher NVRAs than other rice, including potassium, phosphorus, zinc, calcium, vitamin A, iron and vitamin C.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has reported that 1,700 to 1 and 1,600 to 2,000 IU of vitamin A per kilol of dry weight of rice are needed per day.
