Pureharvest Organic Long Grain Brown Rice is grown organically without the use of any pesticides or harmful chemicals.

Our Organic Brown Rice is flavourful, easy to digest, and loaded with nutrition. Brown rice retains the bran and as such has a higher nutritional value than most other rices. Whole brown rice is a good source of B vitamins, such as thiamin and niacin, and also provides fibre, iron, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium. The germ of whole rice contains phytin, which helps expel toxins from the body.

Long grain rice is more slender in shape than regular rice and is firmer and less sticky when cooked.

Koshihikari rice

Often called sushi rice, koshihikari is a short grain rice produced by the milling of specially cultivated koshihikari paddies. The flavour is slightly sweet and the grain has an off-white colour. Commonly used for making sushi, the texture of this type of rice is soft, and the glycaemic index is relatively low in comparison to other varieties of rice, as Koshihikari rice has a high amount of resistant starch meaning it's broken down slowly in the body raising blood sugar levels slowly.

Short-grain rice has a plump shape. The outer layer of short-grain rice (also sometimes referred to as medium-grain rice) absorbs water very easily and as a result, the cooked product ends up soft and a little sticky. Slight stickiness isn't a bad quality – it makes it a heck of a lot easier to eat with chopsticks, for instance – and in fact, the characteristic can even be taken advantage of by cooking gently over a long period of time and with continuous stirring (to slowly release the starches and yield a creamy texture), as in risotto.
