About Rice

Rice is a popular cereal grain crop that's a staple food for a large part of the world's population, especially in East and South Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and the West Indies. It is the grain with the second-highest worldwide production, after maize (corn).

Rice is rich in nutrients and contains a number of vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates—the best source of energy. However, a lot of these nutrients are lost during milling and polishing, which turns brown rice into white rice by removing the outer rice husk and bran to reveal the white grain. That is why brown rice has become popular in recent years.

There are many varieties of rice for many purposes; the main distinction is between:

  • long-grain, which tends to remain intact after cooking
  • medium-grain becomes more sticky and is used for sweet dishes also for risotto in Italy and sushi
  • and short-grain rice is often used for rice pudding
