The PET bottle was chosen for the packing for these rices, and so that the rice would not be easily oxidised, and it would be also easy to store. We would recommend storing this product in the refrigerator after opening!

Cooking instructions for rice. They very for different families and chefs but generally: Wash the rice with cold water, massaging it gently and continue rinsing and pouring out the water of any dirt or rice bran, or if you prefer you can use a colander. Be careful not to drop grains of rice as this is considered disrespectful to the rice and the farmer who grew it. Fill the bowl of rice with cold water and let it sit for about 1 hour. This soaks the water into the centre of the rice grains, making them cook quicker with less starch. Then empty out all the water that was used for soaking and pour in the appropriate amount for cooking. Generally for 1 cup of white rice, use 1 & ¼ cups of water. Bring to a boil and than cook on low heat for about 20 minutes or until the water is gone. Stir at times so that you don’t burn the bottom of the pot. Turn of the heat and let it steam for about 10 minutes. When the rice is finished take your rice spoon and toss the rice to make it fluffy. Enjoy your rice! Of course this is basic but time and amounts can vary depending on the temperature, the altitude, etc. Once you become used to making rice you will be able to cook with intuition.
