Brown Rice has many health benefits over white rice. Amongst its advantages are its higher fibre content, as well as a higher content of b-vitamins and minerals such as iron. Brown rice is generally from the same variety of white rice; it's just that white rice has undergone polishing in order to remove the outer layers. But the outer layers are nutritious, and also tasty. Brown rice is simply better!
Cook brown rice for slightly longer than white rice (around 5 minutes longer) for a soft, fluffy consistency that "grips" sauces very well. Brown rice is more filling than white rice, and is thus ideal for curries and other hearty meals.
Basmati is a long-grain rice that originates primarily from India. This brown basmati rice is flavoursome and cooks in 20 minutes (if you follow our method). It is a luxurious rice with many health benefits.
Sushi Rice is designed to be particularly glutinous (sticky) so that you can form sushi shapes with it. This brown sushi rice is a wholegrain healthy option that we find also works well in risotto dishes, as well as sushi.
