Yes, you can found puffed brown rice, but if you just go with the generic stuff in a bag, it's usually just white rice.

If it's white rice, there shouldn't be much if any, as the antinutrients were in the part that was removed, so it's not very different from eating a load of sugar.

It's possible, though I've never heard of puffed brown rice.

I don't know, sorry :) But I know that Dr. Diana Schwarzbein highly recommends avoiding them... They are highly processed and have a high GI

Kurt Harris eats it, for what that's worth. I agree with raydawg that most of the antinutrients have been removed. And, if you get the generic brand, there usually isn't any added sugar (rice krispies have some added sugar). I don't agree that it's necessarily similar to eating a load of sugar as it would have much less fructose (if any?) than sugar. It should be mostly starch. I think it's fine in moderation as a source of carbohydrate and/or calories as long as you are eating other more nutrient dense foods also. And I'd maybe avoid it if trying to lose weight.
