The Big Deal About Cauliflower Rice
You’ve heard about the cauliflower rice trend and chances are you’ve seen it the frozen aisle or fresh produce area of your local store. Maybe you’ve even tried it! Riced cauliflower is a great alternative to starchy sides like rice, bread or pasta that we traditionally build our meals around. It’s ideal for anyone on a low carb, Keto or Paleo diet – or simply those who want to add more veg to their meals. With up to 89% fewer carbs than white rice, riced cauliflower has proven a great aid for people trying to manage diabetes or lose weight - whilst staying full.
With US obesity levels skyrocketing, we need to move away from processed grains and simple carbohydrates – and move towards eating more nutritious plant-based foods. The US Department of Health – in its ‘Dietary Guidelines’ (2015–2020) – recommends adults consume 1.5–2 cups of fruit and 2–3 cups of veg per day to reduce the risk of diet-related cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancers and obesity. Yet the Centers For Disease Control & Prevention suggest that 90% of Americans don’t eat anywhere near the recommended daily amount of fruit and veg.
The easier we can make it for consumers to add veg to their meals, the healthier we will all be. Fullgreen’s range of riced veggies They contain 100% non-GMO veggies.

Cauliflower is healthy (its superfood qualities are well documented) but not all ‘riced cauliflower’ is created equal. The frozen variants (from Birds Eye, Green Giant and Trader Joes etc) are ‘mushy’ once thawed. And we find riced cauliflower from the fresh produce section has often turned to mold before we get ‘round to eating it.
