Whole-Grain Rice Buyer's Guide
Whole-grain rice has been minimally processed, just enough to sort and remove the inedible outer husk, leaving the nutritious outer bran layer intact. “Think of the rice kernel like an apple: whole-grain brown rice is the apple with the peel intact and white rice is a peeled apple,” says Jessica Lundberg of Lundberg Family Farms.
Developed by Lundberg Family Farms, Wehani is russet-colored, long-grain rice with a pronounced nutty flavor. Unlike other long-grain rice, the grain splits while cooking. Use for pilafs, casseroles or rice salad. Use Bhutanese Red Rice as a substitute; adjust cooking time accordingly.
