Jasmine rice is snow-white and without impurities. Its bright jasmine aroma should be smelt even through the packaging. It is surprising, but when people try to grow this variety of rice in some other countries, it loses its properties.
Because of its country of origin, the rice has several more names, namely, Thai Rice or Asian Rice. It is traditionally steamed in these countries. Consequently, it turns out to be loose and fluffy. In case you decide to cook it the usual way, it is better to use a multicooker or a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
The rice is perfect as a side dish for meat and vegetable dishes.
Due to vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants included in the jasmine rice composition, it is recommended for people with cardiovascular and circulatory system disorders. The rice is also consumed to prevent gastrointestinal tract and thyroid gland diseases. The cereal is good as a dietary product being hypoallergenic since it does not contain gluten.
