What Is Brown Basmati Rice?
Basmati rice is a type of rice grown in the Himalayas, Pakistan and also India. Just like all species of rice, basmati is available in white or brown versions, depending on the extent of the milling process. Like jasmine rice, it has its own unique smell.
Why Should I Get Brown Basmati Rice ?
If brown rice is further milled to remove the bran and most of the germ layer, the result is a whiter rice, but also a rice that has lost many more nutrients. At this point, however, the rice is still unpolished, and it takes polishing to produce the white rice we are used to seeing.
Polishing removes the aleurone layer of the grain - a layer filled with health supportive essential fats, and because these fats, once exposed to air by the refining process, are highly susceptible to oxidation, this layer is removed to extend the shelf life of the product. The resulting white rice is simply a refined starch with a longer shelf life, but a lesser nutritional content.
The difference between brown rice and white rice is not just colour! A whole grain of rice has several layers, Only the outermost layer, the hull, is removed to produce what we call brown rice. This process is the least damaging to the nutritional value of the rice and avoids the unnecessary loss of nutrients that occurs with further processing.
