Basmati is a Hindi word which means perfume. This traditional organic & fair trade Basmati rice has a unique aroma. This premium quality rice comes from Uttarakhand in the north of India. The irrigation by Himalayan mountain streams is rich in natural minerals that gives the rice it's delicate fragrance.
Thanks to an innovative process of aging, gentle mechanical processing, and re-integration with the rice’s own germ, this is a uniquely rich and healthy white rice. With firm kernels that keep their shape through the cooking process, Acquerello makes a perfectly creamy risotto!
