Parboiled rice is a type of rice that has been partially boiled in the husk. The process of parboiling involves soaking, steaming, and drying the rice before removing the hull. This process causes the rice grains to absorb some of the nutrients from the bran layer, resulting in a firmer, less sticky texture compared to regular white rice.


Parboiled rice retains more of the natural vitamins and minerals found in the outer layers of the rice kernel, including thiamine (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), and iron. It also has a slightly nutty flavour and is less prone to becoming mushy when cooked.


Because of its firmer texture and ability to hold its shape well, parboiled rice is often used in dishes where separate, fluffy grains are desired, such as pilafs, biryanis, and rice salads. It’s also popular in regions where rice is a staple food, such as parts of Asia, Africa, and the southern United States. Additionally, some people prefer parboiled rice for its perceived health benefits due to its higher nutrient content compared to regular white rice.
