How do I prepare white rice for the small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) test prep diet?

For the SIBO test prep diet, you should prepare fresh white rice.

White rice freshly prepared no later than the morning of the test is best.

Microwave rice contains oil so avoid that for the test preparation day.

Older rice that has been cooked and cooled can become a 'resistant starch' which changes the way your body digests it.

Cooking and eating the rice on the same day avoids that risk.
