Know more about brown unpolished rice
Husked (brown) rice
Husked (brown) rice from which only the husk has been removed. Brown rice is unpolished rice, which has
been milled to remove the hull from the kernel but retain the rice bran layer and the germ, which give it a
nutty flavour and chewy texture. Long grains of brown rice tend to be less fluffy and tender, and short
grains less sticky. Brown rice also takes about twice as long to cook and has a much shorter shelf life
(because of the oil in the germ).
Examples of rice falling within this definition are those with the commercial descriptions 'brown rice',
'cargo rice', 'loonzain' and 'riso sabamato'. Husked brown rice (cargo rice) which although the husk has
been removed by mechanical hullers, is still enclosed in the pericarp. Husked rice almost always still
contains a small quantity of paddy.
