HOW CAN I REHEAT THE RICE?
You can do it in the microwave, by adding some teaspoons of water and covering it up very well. Or you can use the stove, pouring some oil over the pan, adding the rice and some teaspoons of water; cover it up and heat it over low flame.
IS IT NECESSARY TO WASH THE RICE BEFORE COOKING IT?
Depending on the variety. For example, non sticky rice doesn't need to; once it's cooked, it's grains stay loose. Overall, to wash or not the rice is a personal choice, our suggestion is to wash it and drain it before frying.
HOW MANY PERSONS CAN BE FED WITH A CUP OF RAW RICE?
It depends on the dish. For example, it can be enough for 5 or 6 people if the rice is served along with some kind of meat; if it is the main course, and more ingredients are added such as chicken, cream, pepper, etc, it will serve 4 people.
WHY DOES NON STICKY RICE HAS A BROWN LOOK?
Due to the process to which it is submitted, and because each grain contains husk properties.
WHAT CAN I DO TO OBTAIN A VERY WHITE RICE?
You can add some lemon drops to the water you are going to use.
WHY IS SUSHI RICE SO STICKY?
This rice belongs to a variety called Calrose, which, due to its origin, has a high content of starch that makes it sticky while cooking.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VERDE VALLE RICE IN COMPARISON TO OTHER BRANDS?
Its quality. With the use of optical fiber laser channels machinery in the selection process, each grain of rice packed for you is inspected. Every grain is meticulously selected and removed if it does not meet our quality standards; for example, this applies to grains with different color or shape, and to broken or starched grains.
