Migu Smart Low Sugar Rice Cooker comes with starch reducing technology.

RICE is a staple diet of Malaysians. According to a report by the Global Agricultural Information Network, domestic rice consumption has grown slightly, from 2.75 million tons in 2017/18 to 2.8 million tons in 2018/19.

The moderate increase is attributed to a shift in eating patterns from a high-carbohydrate diet to a healthier high-fibre alternative diet, especially among the young working adult population.

Despite the change, rice continues to be part of our daily diet. However, more people are looking for a healthier alternative.

With Pensonic’s Migu Smart Low Sugar Rice Cooker (Migu) PSR-1804DCC, consumers can eat healthier cooked rice.

Rice has to be properly cooked to be digestible but when cooked, it becomes starch that increases circulating blood sugar, which can, over time, result in health issues such as diabetes.

Most of the rice cookers available in the market simply cook rice and then keeps it warm, with all the starch absorbed into the rice.

Migu has a unique starch reducing technology that can reduce up to 37% of starch content in cooked rice.

Pensonic executive director Nelson Chew said, “With so many mouth-watering varieties of rice dishes such as nasi lemak, chicken rice, nasi kerabu, nasi briyani, butter rice and lor my kai available at every turn, Malaysians are spoilt for choice.

“Migu lets you enjoy your rice and take second helpings, minus the extra calories.”

Being health-conscious is not just a trend, it can mean the difference between living a better quality life or making endless trips to clinics and hospitals.

For a limited time, one can buy Migu (original price RM999) at a promotional price of RM699 (30% discount).

Free gifts worth RM165 will also be given away (while stocks last). Just purchase Migu and register for the e-warranty to receive one unit of yhogurt maker (worth RM115) together with RM50 voucher.
