Foods That Cause Constipation #9: White Rice

White rice and white rice noodles are the result of refining which causes a reduction in the amount of fiber. White rice contains high amounts of starch, which upon getting into the digestive tract, can slow things down and lead to constipation.

By contrast, unrefined, organic rice is rich in fiber which retains water and helps in the digestion process. The fiber also aids in bowel movement, reducing the risk of constipation.
