Researchers in Sri Lanka have found that making simple changes to the way rice is cooked can lower its calorie content, by converting some of the starch to a non-digestible form.

Do you love rice, but are worried about your weight?
The good news is scientists have now discovered a way to reduce the calorie content by 60 per cent – simply by the way it is cooked.
Cooking the rice with coconut oil, and then cooling it for 12 hours in the fridge, more than halved the number of calories in the rice when it was eaten.
However, doctors have previously warned that eating reheated rice can cause food poisoning, and so advise making sure the rice is steaming hot all the way through before eating it.
They also advise leaving the rice in the fridge, no more than a day before reheating.
James acknowledges there is a lack of data on whether there are measurable benefits of increasing resistant starch intake, and says that clinical trials with obese patients are currently ongoing.
