I don't think rice comes from wheat dude. There doesn't seem to be any point in rice for now unless some sort of Asian-themed biome is added.
Went to clarifying things and turns out you were right, okay, my bad but still pretty cool to add and maybe doesn't need an Asian-themed biome as Minecraft is a universal place which means it could be evrywhere.

I have returned after all these years and I'm internally dying inside whenever I think about the posts I've done prior to this current year. Just don't look at them.
Despite my name, I don't think this would be a good idea. If you took one piece of wheat, you could turn it into three rice, right. With that three rice, you could make a rice bowl which gives 2 hunger. you could make three rice bowls and get like 6 hunger back, when you could make one piece of bread for two and a half hunger bars.
I think rice (and mixing rice with other foods) is a good idea, if it were different from other crops. I think rice should be found and grown in water, like it is in the real world, since no other crop does this (sugarcane comes close but isn't really in the water)
