What is haiga-mai rice?
a happy (and healthy) medium
For those who prefer the taste and texture of white rice but avoid it in favor of more nutrient-rich brown rice, look to haiga-mai rice for the best of both worlds! Our Blonde Milled Chico Rice is semi-polished in the haiga-mai style in which only some of the outer bran layer is removed, retaining the nutritious and oil-rich germ prized by health-conscious fans of brown rice. The result is an easily digestible, quickly-cooking grain with the subtle, delicate flavor and smooth texture of white rice and much of the vitamins, minerals, and oils of unpolished brown rice.
