Lucedio Marrone wholegrain rice originates from the from a specific small family hillside farm near to Lucedio Abbey beside the city of Trino in the North West of Italy. Lucedio and the surrounding area played an important role in the development of the Italian boutique rice industry and we are delighted to bring this superb wholegrain rice back to the UK.
It should be cooked in boiling water for about 30 minutes, adding salt to taste. When cooked, this boutique rice will have a lovely wholegrain taste.
The process that produces brown rice removes only the outermost layer, the hull, of the rice kernel and is the least damaging to its nutritional value. The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of the vitamin B1, 90% of the vitamin B6, half of the manganese, half of the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the dietary fibre and essential fatty acids.
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.
