Rice Advice

Shopping for rice can be overwhelming. White, brown, wild, jasmine, basmati, arborio and sushi are more commonly found – some stores even carry varieties such as red, purple and black! What’s a savvy shopper to do?

Choosing the right rice for your needs doesn’t have to be difficult. Trust us – we do it all the time! We know how frustrating it can be to bring home a bag or box of carefully selected rice and to find broken grains or, worse, contaminants. And the confusion over which variety of rice is healthiest can be so frustrating; you might want to give up! But the benefits of rice to our health (not to mention its superior versatility) should persuade you not to give up. Let us guide you through a smooth shopping experience!

We’ll be honest. We want it to be easy to choose healthy, high quality rice. That’s why we love Rice Select. They offer a large selection of rice, but it’s a cinch to find what you need. A savory, homemade meal is made easy with organic rice products like Roasted Chicken & Herb, Garden Vegetable, Wild Mushroom & Herb, Toasted Almond Pilaf, and more. Or try Royal Blend varieties for a mixture that includes red beans or lentils for a more interesting texture and even better nutrition.

We also love that Rice Select grows their rice on American soil. Exotic Jasmati, Kasmati, Texmati and Sushi rice are all grown right here in the United States. Jasmati is a fragrant, more delicate grain of rice, Kasmati are long, thin grains which become even longer when cooked. Texmati is Rice Select’s signature product – a unique, award-winning grain that is available in white, brown, or light brown varieties.

Here’s a quick guide to help you make the best decision for tonight’s dinner.

  • Planning on having chicken or turkey? Pair it with Rice Select’s Royal Blend, Texmati Light Brown combined with Red Rice and Red Beans. Load it up with veggies and you’ll have a delicious, nutritious feast.
  • Going with pork roast or beef tenderloin? Balance it out with a hearty Royal Whole Grain Blend of brown Texmati, Red Rice, pearled barley, and rye berries. Season liberally for a nourishing, flavor-infused meal.
  • Looking forward to fish tonight? Make sure to try it with a Royal Blend, Texmati Light Brown blended with, Red Rice and Lentils. For refreshingly savory flavor, sprinkle with fresh herbs and lemon.
