Organic Brown Rice.
Proudly 100% Australian grown.
Medium grain organic brown rice is a highly nutritious grain, and gets its characteristic nutty flavour and firmer texture from the presence of fibrous outer bran layers. The bran layers are rich in minerals and vitamins, especially the B-complex group.
Brown rice is most well known for its fibre content and its ability to keep our digestive tract in good working order. Magnesium and Vitamin E are exclusive to the brown varieties of rice, both of which are vital for the functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system. Easily digestible, brown rice is also rich in protein, thiamine, calcium, magnesium and potassium. For those trying to lose weight or those suffering from diabetes, brown rice can prove a healthful staple given its low glycemic rating which helps reduce insulin spikes. The oil in brown rice also helps lower cholesterol. Medium grain brown rice provides the fuel for steady energy production and can be combined with a myriad of foods to build on its flavour and boost its nutrient profile further.
Cooking Suggestion: After rinsing brown rice, soak with filtered water for a few hours or overnight. Add one part rice to two parts boiling water or broth.After the liquid has returned to a boil, turn down the heat, cover and simmer for about 35-40 minutes.
