? ? ? Any idea on this ... Brown Rice

? ? ? Any idea on this ... 
Brown Rice
if (1 Cup) then liquid (water/broth) should be 2 1/2 cups.
Bring rice and liquid to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed,
40-50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
It is best if once the rice is done cooking, let it stand for at least 5 minutes with the lid on. An expert Harold McGee says this “resting period” allows the grains of rice to cool and become firm, so that the rice does not break when scooped from the pot.
Also later fluff the rice with a fork..
Another ratio for brown rice is ... For every cup of rice your wish to prepare, bring 10 cups of water to a rapid boil (example: 2 cups brown rice = 20 cups of water.) 
The amount of water to four cups per cup of brown rice and the results were so perfect! 
For making perfect Brown rice brown rice (whichever type you prefer) use water at least four cups of water for every one cup of rice n salt to taste.
Why eat brown rice.. Brown rice is a nutritious whole grain that gives fiber, protein and selenium. These are the "good carbs" that help balance your diet and can fill you up.
Now feel the secret to cooking perfect brown rice lies in getting the water to brown rice ratio correct. Once you get that correct, it’s only a matter of turning off the heat when the rice is done.
The method best to cook perfect brown rice is the absorption method. 
For that one will have to put 1 cup brown rice and 2 cups water in a saucepan with lid.
When water starts to boil, turn heat down to a simmer, and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed and there is no water standing at the bottom of the pan.
Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
Brown rice will always have a more chewy texture than white rice.
Brown rice is very good for the health.
