So, what is parboiled rice?

Parboiled rice is a type of rice that has been partially cooked in its husk before being milled. This process involves soaking, steaming, and drying the rice, which results in a firmer texture, reduced stickiness, and a more nutritious grain. The parboiling process allows the rice to retain more of its natural vitamins and minerals, making it a healthier option than traditional white rice. Parboiled rice also has a lower glycemic index, which means it can help regulate blood sugar levels. Its unique processing method gives it a nutty flavor and a rich, golden color, making it a popular choice in a variety of dishes, from pilafs to salads.
