Jasmine Rice


Jasmine rice ranks high on the glycemic index, meaning the body digests it slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the bloodstream.

A 2007 study in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" found that consuming jasmine rice four hours before bedtime cut the amount of time it took to fall asleep in half when compared with eating a high-glycemic-index meal at the same time interval.

The authors speculate that high-glycemic-index meals may up the production of tryptophan.
