Organic Brown Jasmine Rice
Whole Grain Aromatic Rice, Imported from Cambodia
The poetically named Jasmine Rice is also referred to as "fragrant rice" due to its floral aroma and flavor. Leaving the germ and bran layer intact intensifies its fragrance and nutty flavor while retaining the highest nutritional value. This nourishing whole grain rice has a lovely supple texture – unlike the chewy and bland taste of some brown rice.
Perfect for all cuisines and in dishes that will showcase its delicate fragrance, Brown Jasmine Rice is nutritious and flavorful and can be used steamed plain, in a pilaf, stir-fry, salad or pudding.
Our Organic Brown Jasmine Rice is chiefly grown on small family plots by households belonging to the Damrei Romeal Organic Rice Cooperatives in Takeo, a province dominated by rice fields and sugar palm trees. Cooperative members are using a set of growing methods, called the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which enable smallholder farmers to harvest more rice from their traditional varieties using less water, seed, land and no chemicals. Researchers have found that the major aromatic compound in rice is increased in response to water stress. With SRI, farmers drain their paddies periodically, which may explain why Cambodian consumers are saying that SRI-grown 'Phka Malis' is more aromatic and better tasting.
