Rice facts

Rice is a staple food for more than half the earth?s population and is mainly grown in Asian countries with a lot of rainfall. Rice is versatile and can be used as ingredient in many recipes. Whole rice is protected by a hull. To produce white rice or polished rice, this hull is mechanically removed. This de-hulling removes a lot of the rice nutrients, including vitamins and minerals. This is why white rice is often enriched with vitamins.
Rice consists mainly of starch (90 percent). The starch of long grain rice consists mainly of amylase. This type of starch will give a dry cooked rice. Medium and short grain rice contains a lot of amylopectin, which will give the rice a sticky consistency when cooked. Compared to other cereals, rice is a fair source of protein (6 to 7 percent). Rice is low in fat, contains no cholesterol and is free from gluten.


Easy reliable recipe

Just tried this rice pudding recipe and very pleased with the results. If you want to speed up the cooking time leave the rice in the milk for at least half an hour and the rice absorbs some of the liquid.Please note, if left standing after cooking the pudding continues to absorb the soya milk. This can be remedied by stirring through some soya cream or more deliciously coconut cream, it also adds a lovely flavour!
