4 types of rice UNCLE BEN'S® love

Long Grain Rice

Long Grain Rice

Long Grain Rice is the most common type of table rice consumed in the world. When cooked, long grain rice has a creamy, sticky texture - commonly known as 'sticky rice' in Australia. Try UNCLE BEN'S® Long Grain Rice with your favourite Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe for a fast and satisfying meal.

Wild Rice

Wild Rice

Wild Rice is not really rice at all! Wild Rice is actually the seed from a water-grass plant that grows a long stalk and thrives in deep water. Traditionally grown wild in the lakes of northern United States and Southern Canada, it has a unique chewy texture and nutty flavour. Try UNCLE BEN'S® Brown & Wild Rice with your favourite protein and green vegetables. We recommend baked honey & soy salmon for a tasty and convenient weekday meal.

Brown Rice

Brown Rice

Wholesome, nutritious brown rice retains the three parts of the rice grain: the bran layer, germ and the endosperm. The light brown colour of the rice comes from the bran layers which are rich in minerals and vitamins. When cooked, brown rice has a mild nutty flavour and chewy texture. Try UNCLE BEN'S® Brown Rice with your family's favourite protein and vegetables for an Asian stir-fry in minutes

Red Rice

Red Rice

Red Rice is simply a variety of rice that is harvested with its hull or germ fully or partially intact, which means the grains retain both their colour and their intrinsic nutritional value. It has a mild, nutty taste and can be used interchangeably in almost any dish that calls for brown or white rice. Try UNCLE BEN'S® Rice Medley of Brown, Red & Wild Rice as a simple and quick base for a Thai stir-fry, garnish with coriander and a dash of chilli.
