THE RICE FOR GARNISHES AND SALADS
Long grain Rice
Long and thin grain rice, approximately three times longer than wider. Our long grain rice is grown in fields of Valencia and Andalusia.
It differs from short grain rice in that it does not contain starch, and is, therefore, loose, whole and light when cooked and has little flavour absorption. It is ideal as an accompaniment to sauces, garnishes and salads, both for hot and cold dishes.
This is the most-used type of rice in the world. In Asia, America, Africa, people accompany their dishes with rice as we use bread. Although, in the past, this type of rice was not consumed very much in Spain, it is every day more popular, as it is the ideal rice for salads and garnishes.
