Different Types Of Rice

  • White Rice – White rice is a short grain rice, that has been milled to have its husk, bran, and germ removed. This alters the flavor, texture and appearance of the rice and helps prevent spoilage, extend its storage life, and makes it easier to digest. Great to use in anything and everything!
  • Brown Rice – Brown rice is a whole grain. The outer hull is still on there (that’s what makes it brown). Plus it has the germ and bran, as well. These things give it more fiber, a slightly nutty flavor, and a chewy texture. Add a bit more nutrition and flavor to your favorite Burrito Bowl by using brown rice.
  • Basmati Rice – Basmati is a long grain rice is known for its nutty flavor and slightly floral aroma. It’s commonly found in Indian and South Asian cuisine, including dishes such as biryani and rice pilaf. We keep this rice on hand for Korean Pork or Chicken Curry.
  • Jasmine Rice – Like basmati, jasmine rice is a long grain white rice. However, jasmine tends to be shorter than basmati and slightly stickier when cooked. It’s also known for its strong floral aroma and buttery flavor. Jasmine rice is a personal favorite of mine and perfect for dessert dishes.
  • Wild Rice – Wild rice is known for its distinct dark coloring and earthy flavor. It’s considered a whole grain and is a good source of protein. This rice pairs perfectly with chicken or pork dishes.
