Will using the milling blade to mill whole grains of brown rice yield a protein powder?

Hi....2 questions please....1) will using the milling blade to mill whole grains of brown rice yield me the same nutritional benefit equivalent of a brown rice protein product? and 2) are canned beans ( kidney, black, pinto etc.) nutritionally equal to the same dry beans cooked at home? thanks

Dietitian's Answer

Milled brown rice would make a brown rice flour. This is different than a brown rice protein powder. For a protein powder, they extract the protein and process it into a powder.
Canned beans and dry beans are not equivalent. Dry beans expand when cooked so dry beans would measure less than already cooked beans.

but is there any nutritional benefit from cooking dry beans at home over using canned beans,,,,,thanks

cooking beans at home is cheaper and you control the sodium level but it is longer so cans are god when you want it now
Canned beans are considered more of a carb, while dry beans cooked at home are considered more of a protein (at least they yield more protein); nutritionists recommend dry over canned, especially for anyone looking to maintain good glucose levels. I hope this helps!
