Baked Chicken with Rice Stuffing Lower Protein

In the Baked Chicken with Rice Stuffing Lower Protein what is parboiled rice, uncooked? Looks like a great meal. Dietitian comment: It's the same as converted rice. Uncle Ben's is a popular brand of parboiled rice. Here's the Wiki description: Parboiled rice is rice that has been partially boiled in the husk. The three basic steps of parboiling are soaking, steaming and drying. These steps also make rice easier to process by hand, boost its nutritional profile (other than its vitamin-B content, which is denatured) and change its texture.
