- White "Basmati" rice
- Extra quality - XXL Long grain
Basmati rice originates from the Indian subcontinent. Its name means "aromatic" and it has 12 times more aromas than other types of rice. In the Middle East, basmati is present in Persian, Arabic and other Middle Eastern cuisines. In India and Pakistan, basmati is the most popular type of rice. It is distinguished by its nutty taste and pleasant aroma.
Basmati rice is also called the "King of Rice". Its grains are long and thin, and when cooked, they lengthen even more without changing in width. Preferred and loved by foodies as it remains fluffy and crumbly after cooking.
Basmati rice is distinguished by its high content of carbohydrates and calories, as well as trace elements such as folate, thiamin and selenium.
Low glycemic index
Many types of rice, especially white rice, are not recommended for people with diabetes. Basmati rice is a great alternative for these people. When properly prepared, basmati has the lowest glycemic index of all rice types.
An advantage of basmati rice is that it is digested and metabolized much more slowly, resulting in more stable blood sugar levels. This makes it a great choice for people with diabetes, but be careful not to overcook it! The longer it is boiled, the higher the glycemic index of this rice will be.
Basmati rice is distinguished by its high content of vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine).
This vitamin plays many important roles in the body and is water-soluble, which means you need to get enough each day through your diet, as your body does not store it. Basmati contains approximately 22% of the recommended daily intake.
Often called the "anti-stress" vitamin, B1 can help your body in stressful situations and strengthen your immune system. In addition, this vitamin helps your nervous system and brain function properly.
