Gold (Parboiled)

What is parboiled? Parboiling is a patented process, which changes the nutrients of the rice kernel. After undergoing this process and proper milling, the rice obtains a light yellow or amber color. It cooks up fluffy and separate.  Mahatma Gold® is available in select markets. If you are looking for an inexpensive replacement to other brands of parboiled rice, just ask for Mahatma Gold at your local grocer. Available in 2 lb and 5 lb sizes.
