So, what is parboiled rijst?

Parboiled rijst, also known as converted rice, is a type of rice that has been partially boiled in the husk. The process of parboiling involves steaming the rice before removing the husk, which helps to preserve the nutrient content and improve the texture of the grains. This method also makes the rice less sticky and easier to cook, while maintaining its natural flavor and aroma. Parboiled rijst is often used in dishes that require a firm and fluffy texture, such as pilaf, biryani, and rice salads. It is a great source of carbohydrates, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals.
