Arbrorio, or round-grain rice
With a nutritional value higher than white rice
Rice is an ancient, popular ingredient and the main source of nourishment for over half of mankind.
Brown rice is not a separate variant of rice, but instead, when hulled, it retains the parts which are rich in nutrients (the bran and germ).
Due to its starch content, brown rice is a major source of energy. The fiber of the rice impedes the absorption of carbohydrates and thus its glycemic index is much lower, making it more suitable for people with diabetes instead of white rice. Additionally, the fiber stimulates peristalsis.
Brown rice has a higher protein and fat content than the white variant. It also contains high levels of Vitamin Bs (with the exception of B12), manganese, phosphorus and iron, yet is low in sodium.
Use: Rinse thoroughly before use. Cook the rice in 2.5-3 parts water in approx. 40-50 minutes. Suitable for use as a side dish, porridge, risotto or in salads, one-pot and casserole dishes, in soups or even for desserts.
