SHORT GRAIN BROWN RICE organic
Rice is called brown if it has not gone through a full processing cycle, and the bran shell has remained on grain. Brown rice is not ground or polished, so it is healthier than traditional white rice. This is why unrefined grains are so popular with health advocates. Brown rice has a grain in the form of an elongated thin oval of brown colour, with a slightly noticeable nutty flavour. After cooking brown rice, the nutty flavour remains, since the oil-containing shell of the rice grain is preserved.
Relatively low in calories and high in fibre, brown rice helps to lower cholesterol.

HOW TO ENJOY
For some, it is a classic kitchen staple. Prepare a great portion and let it sit in your fridge ready to toss in filling and nutritious grain bowl. As cooking the perfect short grain brown rice can be tricky, we suggest you start by giving it a good rinse. Add 6 cups of water for every 1 cup of rice and let it boil for 30 minutes. Drain the rice and put it back in the pan for few more minutes.
