Rice: full of slow-releasing carbohydrate and packed with fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals, it’s simply one of the best foodstuffs you can include in a meal (especially if you’ve chosen a brown variety)! Rice is the ideal base for all kinds of meals, but can also, in many dishes, be the actual star of the meal itself. Some rices are especially well-suited to one particular culinary application, but many fit perfectly with all kinds of different meals, from all over the world.
We’ve got a wealth of choice at Naturally Good Food: organic and non-organic rice, small packs and bulk sacks. We sell rice in as many different varieties as we can source. We’re especially proud of our organic rice, which is grown without the use of harmful pesticides or fertilisers, and in an environmentally sustainable fashion.
Our rice comes from countries all round the world. The basmati rices (both white and brown) are grown in Pakistan and India, in an area that floods just once a year with the snow-melt. Our organic long-grain and short-grain rices tend to come from Italy, particularly the Lombardy and Piedmonte areas, where the fertile swampy plains of the Po river valley provide ideal conditions. We also have rice from a specific region of France (Camargue, with its distinctive red grains) and fragrant Jasmine rice from Thailand.
All our rice
From the Himalayas, it’s our best-seller – and the best way to get started with brown rice.
With an unrivalled delicacy of texture and flavour – perfect for curries.
With a beautiful fragrance, this works well with Thai food.
Again, from Thailand – this time a wholefood variety.
Red rice from France, as called for in specific recipes.
Black rice – once called ‘forbidden rice’ – has a distinctive colour, indicating the presence of anthocyanins.
Wild rice is technically a grass, rather than a rice, but cooks and can be used in just the same way. It’s got a great chewy texture.
The rice eaten most around the world, this is a good, basic brown rice.
If brown rice isn’t (yet!) for you, our long-grain white rice is probably what you’re looking for.
Short-grain rice is ideal for recipes calling for round grains.
From Clearspring, these are just what you need for authentic Japanese cooking.
