Whole grain basmati rice is a unique long grain variety of rice grown in India. The word, “Basmati” means fragrant one in Sanskrit and also means the “soft rice.” Well acclaimed for its nutty flavor and delicate texture, Basmati is used in making a range of culinary delights and rice dishes all over the world. India is the largest cultivator and exporter of this rice, and the majority of Basmati rice comes from the fields of Punjab.
The long grains and the non sticky texture is what make Basmati a popular choice. The cooked grains are free flowing and would retain its flavor and texture. Whole grain basmati rice is available in white and brown. And some of the common varieties include Basmati-370, Basmati-385 and Basmati-Ranbirsinghpura (R.S.Pura). There are many hybrid varieties and fragrant varieties of this rice as well. The genetically engineered short grain version has all the features of traditional Basmati rice and has a higher yield than the other types.
This rice is recommended for diabetic patients. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, Basmati rice has a “medium” glycemic index, which is lower than other varieties of rice.
To enable the customers to differentiate between genuine and fraudulent Indian Rice, which is often sold at a lower price in the market, a unique PCR based assay which is similar to DNA fingerprinting in humans has been developed to safeguard the interests of the consumers, the Basmati rice suppliers and the traders. This technique can detect adulterated strains and Basmati rice exporters use ‘purity certificates’ based on DNA tests for their Basmati rice India consignments.
