Fragrant Petals red jasmine rice originates from a specific contracted small rice grower on the Thailand / Cambodian border. It is twice washed, milled and polished carefully.
Jasmine rice has a fresh scent and sticky taste (three times as sticky as US long grain rice) although is gluten free. It is best boiled for about 15-20 minutes, do not remove the lid of pan or stir as the rice will become gummy - Add butter and salt to taste.
Jasmine rice contains a high degree of fibre and this may benefit the skin and provide quick energy, since its is a complex carbohydrate. It is also a low-fat, sodium-free food.
We ethically source all our boutique rice from growers who do not use synthetic pesticides and herbicides which threaten insect populations, contaminate water sources and can have ecosystem-wide knock-on effects. We accept that rice is a carbon-intensive carbohydrate but not nearly as high as that generated by animal farming, and therefore more sustainable in terms of ensuring the welfare of our environment. When we accept a submission from a rice grower we consider carefully how the rice growing affects the surrounding animal husbandry.
