Semi-brown Carnaroli rice
It’s obtained by removing the bran from the grain only partially, in order to preserve the precious germ as far as possible. Its cooking time is lower than the brown rice one.
It’s precious for its high content of fibre, vitamins, minerals, starch and proteins. If compared to the brown rice, it’s more suitable for those who must take less fibre, such as children.
