Why do you enrich Mahatma® White Rice?

The USDA has established a standard of identity for enriched rice specifying the levels of thiamin, niacin, iron, and folic acid that the rice should contain. When the bran layer is removed from the brown rice to produce white rice, these vitamins and minerals are also removed. White rice is enriched to provide you with the same thiamine, niacin, and iron content as brown rice. By law, folic acid is added to the rice to prevent birth defects such as spina bifida, and is added to all enriched cereal products.
