Long Grain Rice
Long Grain rice is a versatile rice grain which remains light and fluffy once it’s been cooked. The grains are long and slender, as the name suggests, and its subtle flavour makes it the perfect complement to a wide variety of cuisines and dishes, from hearty casseroles, bakes and risottos to Chinese stir-fries, soups or as a side to your favourite curry or chilli con carne.
Long Grain rice needs rich nutrient soil together with a warm climate to grow well. Although grown all over the world, the key growth countries include China, USA, Thailand and South America, where the climate is perfect for cultivating the long grain rice crop. Try our long grain rice for yourself in either single trays or our brand new Rice Pots, giving you more control over your portion sizes and food waste.
Brown Long Grain Rice
Brown type of long grain differs from white long grain rice because it still has the rice germ and bran layers in tact, giving it a darker appearance. The benefits of eating include a higher nutrition content, as the grain retains more vitamins and fibre. Brown rice also helps keep you fuller for longer, thanks to its low GI (glycaemic index) level.
Although brown long grain rice needs slightly longer to cook than white milled long grain rice, it has a deliciously nutty texture and wholesome flavour.
