Origin of brown basmati rice

Basmati Rice is a long-grain rice that originates from the Indian sub-continent and is well known for its aromatic fragrance and delicate flavor. Long grain rice is famous for its delicious flavor, sweet-smelling aroma, and firm consistency and when cooked basmati rice grains remain fluffy yet separated making it a suitable option for savory rice dishes as well as for plain boiled rice. Basmati rice is native to Pakistan, Nepal and India. There are several varieties of basmati rice. According to the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (or APEDA), rice that has a minimum average length of 6.61mm is qualified to be called Basmati.

Why Organic Brown Basmati Rice? Part 1 - History - Be Still Farms Blog

Basmati rice that has not been hulled is known as brown basmati rice. This rice variety is considered a whole grain since it has all the edible parts of the rice including the bran, germ as well as the endosperm. As a result, brown basmati rice retains more of the grain’s fiber and nutrients compared to its white rice counterpart where the germ and bran have been removed.
