Have you found yourself being uncontrollably drawn towards the kitchen (or someone else’s kitchen J) because of an overwhelming aroma wafting across? This is the allure of the aroma of Basmati! Basmati rice is unique not just for its fragrance and length of grain, but also for its nutritional value. There is no doubt that this is special strain of the cereal, and has a much higher nutritional value than other strain / varieties of rice. It is the only rice with less fat than other rice varieties, and it contains vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and some amount of protein – making it a healthier and preferred food staple. In fact, basmati rice can be consumed even by people on a diet or those with diabetes – which is not the case for any other rice strain.
Amongst the most consumed grain globally, rice is a favourite staple of over six billion people, according to research. Worldwide research shows that at least 300 pounds a year of rice is consumed by the average person, and this could be higher in countries where rice is grown.
