http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/613179 Here's a long discussion on it. They say it's not instant rice like "Minute Rice." They say it has more nutrition than normal rice.
It is rice that is steamed while still in the husk. It has more nutrition then regular rice.Hey everyone, quick question and probably a simple answer.
I was at Sam's Club the other day and noticed they had 25lb boxes of parboiled rice, and the "Use by" date is about 2 years.
What exactly is "parboiled" rice? If I repackage it in mylar with oxygen absorbers will it last longer?
No, you can't tell it from regular rice except it is a little yellow before you cook it.Doesn't it cook up faster using less fuel? That would be a major advantage.
