Premium Parboiled Rice

Many foodservice operators choose parboiled rice because of its excellent cooking qualities. Parboiled rice cooks up with separate, slightly firmer grains and holds for long periods without clumping or sticking. Don’t confuse parboiled rice with “instant rice” or “quick cooking rice.” Parboiled is short for partially boiled (not precooked). Parboiled rice has been processed differently than regular milled rice, which accounts for its excellent cooked qualities.

The result is a cooked rice where the grains are firm, fluffy and separate. Cooked, parboiled rice holds well on steamtables for long periods.

Whole Grain Brown Rice

Whole grain brown rice dish
More and more people are looking for healthy, whole grain foods when dining out. Schools across the country are now serving whole grain brown rice as a popular grain choice. Like all whole grains, brown rice is the unmilled kernel with only the outer husk removed. The remaining bran layer gives the rice a natural tan color and is the source for its distinct nutty flavor and chewy texture. Brown rice is also rich in minerals and vitamins, especially the B-complex group, and it is a complex carbohydrate… an energy food!

With the growing awareness of Celiac disease and the rise of gluten-free consumer products, rice flour usage has grown dramatically. Rice does not contain gluten, so rice flour is often the preferred choice for creating products for the glutenintolerant.
Broken kernels of rice are ground into rice flour, also called rice meal. Because rice flour does not absorb water as readily as wheat flour, it also makes crispier coatings for baked and fried foods and is used for dusting the surface of doughs. Commonly known as standard rice flour, this long grain rice flour has a 22% amylose content.
