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.
Jasmine rice is a fluffy, long-grain rice with a sweet floral aroma. It can be used interchangeably with basmati rice, but purists would say that jasmine should be served with Thai food while basmati pairs best with Indian.
