Heritage Select Basmati Rice Cranberries & Almonds Description
Heritage Select® is proud to offer genuine Basmati rice from Northern India, where the unique combination of soil, climatic conditions, and rushing rivers flowing from the Himalayas nourish this one-of-a-kind rice. Widely regarded as the finest rice in the world, Basmati becomes even better when it is aged - and the Basmati is aged for months to produce an extremely long tender, and fluffy aromatic grain. When cooked, the rice expands dramatically and its exquisite fragrance and nutlike flavor are released.
Our Heritage Select Basmati rice pilafs are great side dishes and are excellent on their own, when you want to enjoy an incomparable bowl of rice.
Rice is naturally nutritious and Basmati ranks at the top of the list among all types of rice for being rich in amino acids and other essential nutrients, including niacin, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin and thiamine.
