What Is Organic Short Grain Brown Rice?
Though short grain and long grain brown rice share more similarities than differences, they contain a few key deviations in flavour and preparation. Do not confuse long grain brown rice with jasmine or basmati brown rice. Though these rice's have long kernels, they are distinct from long grain brown rice.
Both short and long grain brown rice feature a light brown colour and a small size. Short-grain rice has a short but wide kernel and often has rounded edges. Long grain rice has a long kernel and often has pointed edges. In some cases, you can find medium grain rice, which looks like a half-way point between long and short grain rice.
