Our organically grown brown basmati rice is nutritious and easy to prepare. Its unique taste, aroma, and texture make it the ideal accompaniment to plenty of Asian and Indian recipes like homemade authentic curries.
Basmati is long-grain rice – it’s longer and slimmer than short-grain varieties. If rice is a regular part of your diet, brown basmati is by far the healthier option as it’s lower in arsenic than other types of rice. Furthermore, brown basmati rice contains a slew of micronutrients that can help you to meet your regular dietary requirements!
Basmati's nutty flavour, floral aroma, along with its soft and fluffy texture, makes it the perfect match for Asian and Indian recipes, such as pilaf and biriyani. It’s also a great choice for rice puddings and side dishes.
Organic basmati contains small amounts of various micronutrients such as folate, thiamine, selenium, niacin, copper, iron, vitamin B6, zinc, phosphorus, and magnesium. Therefore, including this flavoursome rice in your diet can actually help you to meet your regular dietary requirements.
Aside from being loaded with micronutrients, organic basmati is also rich in protein – a one-cup serving (163g) of cooked basmati rice provides approximately 4.4g of protein.
When it comes to fat, carbs, and calories, a one-cup serving will contain approximately 0.5g of fat, 45.6g of carbs, and 210 calories.
Potential Health Benefits
Aside from its delicious flavour, wonderful aroma, and great nutritional content, basmati rice may also offer a number of health benefits:
May aid with weight loss
Basmati rice is packed with amylose, which is a starch that plays a part in its non-sticky and fluffy texture. Research suggests that amylase slows down the digestion of starch which keeps you feeling fuller. As a result, the body takes a longer period of time to digest basmati rice.
It’s a diabetes-friendly food
Due to its slower digestion, basmati rice may enable better blood-sugar management. The glycemic index of basmati ranges between 50 and 58, which means it’s a low to medium GI food. Therefore basmati is healthier and more diabetes-friendly compared to easily digestible rice.
Lower in arsenic
Brown basmati is lower in arsenic – a heavy metal that can be detrimental to your health – compared to other rice varieties. For this reason, basmati is a healthier choice for those who eat rice on a regular basis since it contains the lowest levels of arsenic.
High in nutrients
Basmati rice contains micronutrients such as iron, folic acid, thiamine, and niacin to help increase the nutritional value. This can allow you to better meet your needs for a variety of key vitamins and minerals.
