Bringing out the finest
Basically, there are three types of rice milled in LEAF unit – Brown rice, Parboiled rice & Steamed rice.
LEAF produces the originally brown Brown rice from which only the hull has been removed. As a natural form of bran, Brown rice gets a slightly chewy texture and a nut-like flavour when cooked. Its high fiber and oil content along with a savouring taste makes LEAF Brown rice a nutritional choice. No wonder, it has become the top favourite among health-conscious ones all over the world.
LEAF also specializes in producing parboiled rice. It is important to know that parboiling plays a significant role in milling process. Parboiling is done by soaking the grains that causes them to swell and helps essential nutrients, such as thiamine, to migrate from the bran to the kernel of the grain. Parboiling is followed by drying when the rice temperature and moisture content are gradually reduced. This involves steaming or treating the rice with heat that makes the starch to be retained at right level and hence comes the perfect LEAF Parboiled rice.
