What is Converted Rice?

I've seen Uncle Ben's Converted Rice for years. What makes it different from regular long grained white rice? Is it more nutritious? What is the texture like?

Converted rice = Parboiled rice

Notes: This is a good compromise between nutritious brown rice and tender, fast-cooking white rice. Converted rice is steamed before it's husked, a process that causes the grains to absorb many of the nutrients from the husk. When cooked, the grains are more nutritious, firmer, and less clingy than white rice grains. Uncle Ben's is a well-known brand.

Substitutes: brown rice (more nutritious, takes longer to cook) OR white rice (less nutritious, stickier, takes less time to cook)

Converted rice actually has a lower glycemic index than brown rice. This means that even though it's white, it's actually a good rice for diabetics because it won't spike your blood sugar as fast as other rices!
