ORIGIN

Perfect Blossom aromatic white jasmine rice originates from a specific contracted small rice growing cooperative on the Thailand / Cambodian border. It is twice washed, milled and polished carefully in a traditional manner.

COOKING

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.

HEALTH BENEFITS

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.

ETHICS

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.
