For a product to be included in the HEALTH & NATURE category, it has in one way or another to have special properties for our health. This delicious rice from Pakistan is not different. The 1121 Super Golden Sella Basmati is not only considered to be one of the healthiest rice varieties but is also considered to be the longest rice variety in the world.
The denomination "Sella" means that the rice is pre-cooked with the bran and due to this offers a higher nutritional value in fibre, calcium, potassium, and vitamin B-6 compared to the white rice as the pre-cooked rice absorbs ingredients from the bran during this process. This makes pre-cooked rice comparable to brown rice in terms of nutritional value. The process of preparing precooked rice itself is believed to have originated in the Persian Gulf some thousands of years ago where consuming rice has traditionally been present in the daily diet.
This type of rice offers not only many advantages in terms of nutritional value and health effect, but also in terms of taste as the rice remains firmer and the cooking time is also shorter. Because the grains are more than three times the length compared the width, the grain behaves differently during the cooking process and do not stick as much as other rice varieties.
