Basmati Rice

Basmati is an aromatic rice type with long, slender grains that is historically farmed in India, Nepal, and Pakistan. Many countries use basmati rice farmed in their own countries; nevertheless, basmati is only grown in a few regions of India and Pakistan.


Basmati rice contains soluble fibre, which increases bulk and aids in the movement of waste through the digestive tract. Whole grains, such as brown basmati rice, have been related to a reduced risk of heart disease. Whole grains can help lower cholesterol levels in the blood. Basmati rice, which has a low glycemic index and is high in dietary fibre, aids in diabetes management, digestion, and weight loss.
