Everything at a glance Organic risotto rice 5 kg

Pizza and pasta are so often under the spotlights, when it comes to Italian cuisine, that risotto is often forgotten – which is a pity! If properly prepared, risotto can be an incredibly special and delicious dish. Creamy and soft, but still al dente, a perfect risotto will always make a great impression on your guests. But if you are always ending up with something mushy and porridge-looking, do not despair: you might be simply have been using the wrong rice.

Which type of rice? 

Arborio, Carnaroli, and Vialone Nano are the original, traditional risotto rice types. The round or oval tiny grains contain a particularly high amount of starch, and they have the peculiarity of keeping their bite even when the result is soft and creamy; this combination is crucial for accomplishing the typical and unique texture of a perfect Italian risotto. In a traditional risotto, olive oil, Parmesan, and butter are a must, but if you want, you can easily make delicious vegan risotto without butter, and with nutritional yeast in the place of grated Parmesan. When it comes to the ingredients, there is only one rule: use what you like! What matters are timing and preparation.

Italien der größte Reisproduzent Europas

Hättest Du’s gewusst? In Italien befindet sich das größte europäische Reis-Anbaugebiet. Bereits im 15. Jahrhundert fand das wichtige Grundnahrungsmittel Einzug in die Gegend zwischen Piemont und Lombardei. Über 400 Jahre wurde in dem Flachgebiet, der fruchtbaren Po-Ebene, nur eine einzige Sorte angebaut. Mittlerweile sind es einige Dutzend, darunter natürlich auch hochwertiger Risotto-Reis.

Reispflanzen leben nur eine Saison

Als Reis werden die Getreidekörner der Oryza sativa bezeichnet. Die einjährige Reispflanze kann zwischen 50 und 160 Zentimeter hoch werden. Aus jeder Pflanze wachsen 10 bis 20 schmale Rispen, die jeweils bis zu 200 Reiskörner tragen können. Ein Reiskorn besteht aus einem Keimling, dem Mehlkörper und dem sogenannten Silberhäutchen.

Anfang Mai beginnt die Saat

Meist von Hand werden vorgekeimte Reiskörner auf den Reisfeldern verteilt. Beim dominierenden Nassreisanbau wird das vorbereitete Feld im Anschluss unter Wasser gesetzt. Das Wasser schützt die Pflanzen vor Unkraut und Schädlingen. Zudem gleicht es starke Temperaturunterschiede zwischen Tag und Nacht aus. Reis ist ursprünglich keine Wasserpflanze, hat sich in den letzten Jahrtausenden jedoch meisterhaft an die Bedingungen angepasst.

Trockenlegung der Felder und Erntebeginn

In den letzten Monaten haben sich an den grünen Halmen Rispen entwickelt. Hier wächst der Reis heran. Je nach Sorte braucht Reis zwischen drei und acht Monaten, bis er geerntet werden kann. Sind die Reiskörner ausgreift, werden die Felder trockengelegt. Innerhalb weniger Tage verwandelt sich das Feld von saftigem Grün in schimmerndes Gelb-Braun. Die Ernte kann beginnen. Ein Feld nach dem anderen wird mit Hand-Sicheln geerntet, die Pflanzen gebündelt und abtransportiert. Mittlerweile gibt es zur anstrengenden, manuellen Ernte mancherorts maschinelle Alternativen.

Nach der Ernte heißt es trocknen

Zwischen Ernte und verzehrfähigem Reis bedarf es noch mehrere Schritte der Verarbeitung. Nach der Ernte müssen die Reiskörner zunächst trocknen. Für die Weiterverarbeitung dürfen sie noch maximal 16% Feuchtigkeit enthalten. Das entstandene Zwischenprodukt wird ‚Roh-Reis‘ oder ‚Paddyreis‘ genannt. Die Reiskörner haben zu diesem Zeitpunkt ihre Spelzen noch. Sie bilden eine Art Schale und schützen das Reiskorn vor Umwelteinflüssen.

Für weißen Reis, wie unseren Risotto-Reis, werden zusätzlich das Silberhäutchen und der Keimling entfernt. Dafür werden die Reiskörner meist an Steinen gerieben. Nach dem glättenden Polieren ist unser Risotto-Reis fertig. Er wird eingetütet und ist bereit, von Dir gekocht zu werden.

Questions about questions Organic risotto rice 5 kg

What makes this risotto rice special?

Our risotto rice is the basis for a perfect Italian-style creamy risotto. From certified organic agriculture, our risotto rice is processed with care, and contains a particularly high amount of starch, which is crucial for the creaminess of the results you want to achieve. Our top-quality risotto rice remains firm to the bite.

How do I cook risotto rice?

The basic recipe of risotto never changes, and it takes 20 minutes. Use authentic risotto rice, which is crucial for achieving the creamy texture of a perfect risotto. Do not rinse it, and do not cook it in water like normal rice, but add it to a pot where you have sautéed diced onion. After a minute or so, add some white wine to it, then start adding to it the vegetable broth you must have prepared in advance. Add it by the ladleful and stir accurately until the liquid is absorbed; then add some more broth, and keep on stirring. When pouring the broth, you should never more than cover the rice. After about 20 minutes of this procedure, your risotto should have reached the ideal texture. If the rice looks and feels viscous, the cooking is done. Now stir in Parmesan and butter, and let it rest for a few minutes.

How many calories does this rice have?

100 g of uncooked risotto rice have 356 calories (kcal).

What is the correct dosage of risotto rice?

For a main dish, you should calculate 100 g of uncooked risotto rice per person. For a risotto for two people, 200 - 250 g of rice are appropriate.

Is risotto rice vegan?

Yes, our organic risotto rice does not contain any animal products, and is therefore vegan.

Can I cook risotto rice in advance, and warm it up the next day?

Yes, pre-cooked or leftover risotto from the previous day can be reheated. However, it is important not to let the cooked rice stand at room temperature, but rather to store it immediately in your fridge. The bacteria (Bacillus cereus) naturally contained in rice have thus no chance of producing dangerous toxins, and you can easily store the leftovers in the fridge for up to two days. Even the myth that mushroom dishes shouldn't be reheated has been debunked, so don't worry about your mushroom risotto!

Which types of risotto rice are the most popular?

In order to obtain a perfectly creamy and al dente risotto, a particularly starch-dense rice is needed. In Italy, the three most popular and widely used kinds are Arborio, Carnaroli and Vialone Nano. The differences between the three are subtle but important. - Arborio is the most widely spread. Its grains are about 7 mm long, round and thick. A risotto prepared with Arborio rice is especially viscous. - Carnaroli is the crossbreed of the rice types Vialone and Lencino. Its grains are 7 mm long and more oval than Arborio's. They are very high in water soluble starch.. - Vialone Nano is quite unknown; its grains are a bit larger and rounder, and its taste is gently nutty. Which variety is the best, is a matter of taste. You should not worry too much: if the rice pack is labelled as risotto rice, you are on the safe side.

Can I replace risotto rice with other rice types?

For a good risotto you should buy risotto rice. To satisfy sudden risotto cravings, we understand the temptation of replacing risotto rice with any rice from your pantry. It is of course possible, in a purely practical way, to cook a risotto with 'normal' rice, but not much will be left of the typically creamy risotto texture. In contrast to basmati, long grain or brown rice, risotto rice varieties release starch when cooked, which results in the peculiar creaminess of a risotto. In addition, risotto rice remains pleasantly firm to the bite thanks to its special cooking properties.

Does risotto rice contain gluten?

No, rice is naturally gluten-free. However, traces of gluten from cross-contamination may be present in our organic risotto rice (< 20ppm).

Can I eat risotto when pregnant?

Whether a risotto can be eaten during pregnancy depends on how it is prepared. Many risotto recipes use white wine. The short cooking time of a risotto, around 20 minutes, can cause the alcohol to not evaporate completely. Pregnant women are not recommended to eat dishes in which alcohol has not been cooked or has only been weakly cooked. Parmesan, on the other hand, hardly contains the listeria or bacteria that are dangerous for pregnant women due to its long maturation period and storage (12 to 72 months).
