Cooking Instructions:

  3. Bring water/rice to a slow boil.

Nutrition Information:

Basmati is gluten-free and low in fat. It contains all eight essential amino acids, folic acid, and is very low in sodium and has no cholesterol.

Basmati has a low to medium glycaemic index, meaning that energy is released at a slower, steadier rate leading to a more balanced level of energy.

Type of Basmati Rice:

Basmati is available in white or brown versions, depending on the extent of the milling process.

Brown rice is “whole grain” rice, where only the outer husk of the rice is removed by milling. White rice undergoes further milling, removing the bran and much of the germ of the rice. This means white rice has less fiber and fewer nutrients than brown rice but it also has a longer shelf life compared with brown rice.

Brown rice has twice the amount of manganese and phosphorus, 2.5 times the iron, 3 times the vitamin B3, 4 times the vitamin B1 and 10 times the vitamin B6 than white rice. It also has higher fiber.

Both types of rice have similar amounts of calories and carbohydrates. There are 370 kcal in 100g of brown rice and 356kcal in 100g of raw white rice.

Why Should I Buy This Product?

Basmati rice is a unique species of rice originating from India. Basmati is a variety of long, slender grain aromatic rice which is traditionally from India and Pakistan.

Brown basmati rice is comparable to other types of brown rice in nutrient content (although it does contain about 20% more fiber compared to most other types of brown rice), and white basmati rice is comparable to other types of white rice.
