Integrale rice is an Italian brown risotto rice. Like all risotto
rice varieties, slow cooking integrale rice on the stove top with
multiple infusions of stock causes it to absorb the stock’s flavor and
release starch into the pan, thickening the remaining stock into an
incredibly delicious sauce.
However, because the outer bran is
left on, the finished risotto has a nuttier brown rice flavor, distinct
grains, and a little more chew to its finished texture. The bran also
includes additional nutrients not found in white risotto rice.
This integrale rice has been certified organic by BioAgriCert S.r.l. in Europe.
