R25 per 500g / R50 per kg

Brown basmati rice is a type of long-grain rice that is grown primarily in India, Pakistan, and other South Asian countries. It is a whole-grain rice that has been minimally processed, which means it retains more of its natural nutrients and fiber than white rice.

Compared to white basmati rice, brown basmati rice has a slightly nuttier flavor and a firmer, chewier texture. It is also a healthier choice, as brown rice contains more fiber, vitamins, and minerals than white rice. Brown basmati rice is a good source of complex carbohydrates, which provide energy and help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Some of the potential health benefits of brown basmati rice include:

  1. Promoting heart health: Brown basmati rice is high in fiber and contains compounds that may help reduce cholesterol levels and improve overall heart health.

  2. Supporting digestive health: The fiber in brown basmati rice helps promote healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.

  3. Regulating blood sugar levels: Brown basmati rice has a lower glycemic index than white rice, which means it is digested more slowly and does not cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels.

  4. Supporting weight management: The fiber in brown basmati rice can help promote feelings of fullness and reduce overeating, which may help support weight management.

  5. Reducing the risk of certain diseases: Some studies have suggested that diets high in whole grains, such as brown basmati rice, may help reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.

Brown basmati rice can be used in a variety of dishes, such as stir-fries, pilafs, salads, and side dishes. It is generally prepared by boiling in water or broth until tender, and then served with your choice of seasonings or sauces.
