2. Give the rice a try
As the second food in the BRAT diet, rice can also be an effective way to ease the symptoms of diarrhea; specifically, white rice. A carbohydrate, rice binds food together, which helps to make your stool more solid.
It’s also rich in selenium, folate, manganese, iron, niacin, and thiamine, all nutrients that can help to ease the effects of diarrhea, and nutrients that the body loses when you suffer from this condition. Plus, rice is also very soft, so it’s easy on the digestive tract, which is extremely sensitive during a case of diarrhea.
