About the Product

Rice is a tropical plant from the cereal family, which was cultivated in modern Thailand and Vietnam about 4,000 years ago. This culture had gradually expanded from Asia to other continents, adapting to local climates and taking up a worthy place in the national cuisines of nations around the world.

Advantages of Russian Kuban Rice

Today, there is a large number of rice species used, depending on their characteristics, for the preparation of different dishes. Kuban rice differs from many other rice species because it is not glazed. This allows it to better absorb the flavors of the meal in the preparation process. When cooked properly, the grain of Kuban rice remains whole, but it can also crumble nicely if you opt for porridge. Rice is an important source of several group B vitamins: (thiamine) B1, (riboflavin) B2, (choline) B4, (niacin) B3, (pyridoxine) B6, (folic acid) B9, as well as provitamin A (beta-carotene) and Vitamins K and E, which strengthen the nervous system and have a beneficial effect on the skin, hair and nails. Rice contains a sufficient amount of the trace elements needed in our body, such as potassium, phosphorus, zinc, iron, calcium, iodine and selenium. This cereal contains 12 essential and 8 non-essential amino acids that are needed by the human body to create new cells and function normally.

Recommended

It is important to note that rice, unlike many cereals, does not contain gluten (a plant protein that has high allergenic potential), which makes it suitable for the diet of people suffering from celiac disease or having a certain level of gluten intolerance. This cereal is also rich in complex carbohydrates, which makes it nutritious but not too caloric, so it is considered a great diet food item.
