    Eta sorry for the double post, I skimmed the thread and your question caught my eye.

    How is ground rice overprocessed? Are people against rice in general or just when it's ground?

    I'm trying to make sense of it.

    Yeah it really is. It reminds me of wallpaper glue! After I tried it I decided there was no way I was going to feed it to my kid.

    And I don't see the point of it.

    "When flour is refined to make cereal, the grain’s most nutritious part is removed. The flour essentially becomes sugar.

    As white rice or flour turns into sugar in the body, it raises blood sugar and insulin levels. Worse, babies who consume highly-processed white rice or flour may become accustomed to this unhealthy diet in their older years".

    I assume feeding it to babies is a throwback to ye olde days when they started solids really early. That's just a guess.

    For example, 37 years ago my MIL was advised to start rice cereal with her eldest son at 6 weeks old.

    Hmm, I just thought it was better than other cereal, and thought people used it in other food, not on its own.

    Witwicky answered this. IF (and that's a big IF) I was going to give my baby rice cereal I would make it myself so that it held its nutritional value better.

    I suppose I'm against the off the shelf variety nutritionally wise, but I believe in blw so I would never purée something unless it was meant to be puréed like soup..
