Rice is a grain (rice plant) which comes from India, among others. There are various types of rice and the size of the rice grain differs per rice type.
Rice is basically gluten-free. However, it can happen during the processing process that a so-called cross-contamination takes place. Because several products are processed and packaged, there may be traces of gluten from other products in the rice. Rice varieties where it is 100% certain that they do not contain gluten are labeled gluten-free rice in our shop. The rice without this label may contain traces of gluten.
Rice can be prepared in different ways. Cooking rice is the most common form of preparation. But in addition to cooked rice, the rice can also be puffed (rice cakes) or, for example, ground into a flour or flour.
In our shop we offer various types of premium rice, each with its own characteristic in smell and / or taste or preparation, which has undergone one of the following processing (s):
Unpolished rice: after removing the chaff, a pericarp remains around the rice grain. The rice also contains the reddish-brown bran. This rice is called brown rice or brown rice. The unpolished rice has a full, nutty scent. Although the rice undergoes less processing, it is generally more expensive. This is because the removed rice bran in polished rice (white rice) can be sold separately and thus represents a separate source of income for the grower.
Polished rice: In this case, the unpolished rice is ground, removing most of the husk and bran. Although the unpolished rice contains more nutrients than polished rice (vitamin B1, vitamin E, protein, fat, dietary fiber are lost) this is still done because polished (white rice) has a shorter cooking time. The removed bran is used in, among other things, animal feed or it is added as a dietary fiber in other foods.
Pre-cooked rice: the rice is cooked in the chaff. As a result, more nutrients are retained in the rice after peeling. This rice is also easier to prepare for the consumer because pre-cooked rice changes in texture. Thus, precooked rice can be either unpolished rice or polished rice.
Use about 100 grams of rice per person in the preparation of rice. During cooking, the rice absorbs moisture and the amount of rice per person will be approximately 250 grams.
