Five Vietnamese rice varieties, which differ in their basic chemical composition (starch content, amylose content, fiber content) including polished rices and whole grain rices, were chosen for this study. High-fat diet-induced obesity, using these rice, was subjected to in vivo experiments to evaluate the effects of body weight gain, caloric intake, postprandial blood glucose level (PBGL), and glycemic index (GI) in tested mice groups. PBGL peaks appeared at 30 minute after eating, and GI of each experimental group was ranked in order as GN > TL > HR > GM > LĐ and GN > LT > HR > LĐ > GM, respectively, in which, brown rice (LĐ) and germinated brown rice (GM) had low GI.
