BASMATI RICE, BROWN - Gluten Free

BBAS-5

Description:

Literally translated as "queen of fragrance," basmati has been grown in the Himalayan Foothills of India and Pakistan for thousands of years. Brown Basmati Rice is a thin, long grain that is light beige in color. Brown Basmati retains the outside Bran layer that gives it a higher fiber content and more predominant aroma than White Basmati. Brown Basmati has a rich, nutty flavor and cooks up easily into separate, fluffy grains that have a firm texture. You can substitute Brown Basmati wherever a recipe calls for Brown Rice. Brown Basmati is an excellent choice when a fluffier, drier texture is desired and provides protein and carbohydrates as well as Vitamin B, which aids in digestion.
