Why Should I Buy This Product?

Parboiled rice is white rice that has been "pre-cooked" before being packaged. Minute Rice is par-boiled. This means you can cook it in just a few minutes, versus 20-30 minutes for brown or white rice. However, it has the lowest amount of nutrients of all three types(Brown,White and Parboiled) of rice, since some of the vitamins and minerals have leached out during the parboiling process.

Parboiled rice (also called converted rice) is rice that has been partially boiled in the husk. The three basic steps of parboiling are soaking, steaming and drying.

Rice is easier to polish by hand (removal of the bran layer) after parboiling but mechanical processing is harder since the bran becomes somewhat oily and tends to clog machinery. Most parboiled rice is milled in the same way as white rice.

Parboiling drives nutrients, especially thiamin, from the bran to the endosperm, hence parboiled white rice is 80% nutritionally similar to brown rice. Because of this, parboiling was adopted by North American rice growers in the early 20th century.

Parboiled rice is better than regular rice as it usually goes through a process where the starch gets stabilized

• Parboiled by the volume (1 cup for example) has less calories, but it is because parboiled rice is slightly puffed and weighs less for its size.

• Rice is wonderful in treating diarrhea in children.

• Being low in fiber is extremely soothing to the digestive system.
