For any product to be included in our HEALTH & NATURE category it has to be somehow out of the ordinary. This delicious rice from Pakistan is not different. The 1121 Super Golden Sella Basmati Rice is not only considered among the healthiest variants of rice but it is also is the world's longest rice grain.
The indication "Sella" means that this is parboiled rice and so offering a higher nutritional content of fibre, calcium, potassium, and vitamin B-6 compared to white rice as parboiling rice drives nutrients, especially thiamine, from the bran into the grain, so that parboiled white rice is nutritionally similar to brown rice. The process of parboiling itself, however, is more than two thousand years old and believed to have originated in the Persian Gulf.
This kind of rice offers many advantages and permits us to get the most benefits out of the rice not only in terms of nutrition but also in terms of taste and firmness of the grain which cooks faster and is less sticky.
