Other questions about "Brown"

Q: As you probably know, brown rice is considered to be healthier than white rice for a couple of reasons. In the first place, it is much higher in nutrients, because the bran and germ, which are the most nutritious parts of the grain, haven't been removed. Second, it helps you maintain a normal blood sugar level and keep you full longer, since the bran fibre delays the release of glucose into your blood stream. However, eating brown rice too often would cause indigestion.

Therefore, I keep both brown and white rice in stock and switch eating them every other day. One unpleasant thing about storing rice at home however is that I often have rice weevils as uninvited guests. Oddly enough, those smartasses only choose brown rice to attack--the white is usually safe from them. How do they know brown rice is better? Animal instinct is amazing, isn't it? They don't need science to know what's good for them, whereas we human beings for the most part seem to have lost that gift.

Q: Brown rice is more nutritious than white rice. Though some people know it's healthier and more nutritious than white rice, they are still consuming white rice. Some people tried to eat it, but they didn't like its flavor and continue with the white rice which they always have been consuming though they know it's less nutritious. Brown rice tends to be expensive in most countries, but it is not in this country. Most people living in this country only use brown rice to feed the animals such as chicken,birds, pigs and cows. does this sound natural?
A: they still consume brown rice....continued consuming white rice as per normal even though they know it's less nutritious.
Q: It's deliciously browned. does this sound natural?
A: When we describe food that appears perfectly cooked and delicious as a result, we will often say it is "done to perfection."

Taking your original statement, you could say:
