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 butte

    Why is the price fluctuating?

    Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.

Italy is Europe's first rice producer

Would you have guessed that the largest European rice-growing area is located in Italy? This staple food is cultivated here, between Piedmont and Lombardy, since the 15th century. For over 400 years, the fertile soil of the Po region had nourished only one rice variety, but here now grow something like a few dozen varieties - including, of course, Italy's beloved risotto rice.

Rice plants are yearly plants

The grains of Oryza sativa are called rice. The annual rice plant can reach heights of between 50 and 160 cm, and each plant can have 10 to 20 narrow panicles growing on it, each of which can carry up to 200 grains of rice. A grain of rice consists of a seedling, the endosperm, and the so-called silver membrane.

Sowing begins in May

Pre-germinated rice grains are disseminated by hand in the fields, which are then flooded, as the predominant rice varieties cultivated here are deepwater rice. The water protects the plants from weeds and pests, and compensates for strong temperature differences between day and night. Rice is not originally an aquatic plant, but has masterfully adapted to the conditions over the past millennia.

Drainage of fields and start of harvest

In the last few months, the green stalks have developed panicles, where the rice grows. Depending on the variety, it takes between three and eight months for the rice to be ready for the harvesting: when the rice grains are ripe, the fields are drained. Within a few days, the fields change from lush green to shimmering yellow-brown, and the harvest can begin. One field after the other, the plants are harvested with hand sickles, bundled, and transported away. Some more modern mechanical alternatives to the strenuous manual harvest are being introduced worldwide.

Several processing steps are needed for your rice to be ready to be cooked and eaten. After the harvest, the rice grains first have to dry. They may contain a maximum of 16% moisture, in order to be processed further. The resulting intermediate product is called 'raw rice' or 'paddy rice', whose grains still have their husks which form a kind of shell and protect the rice grain from environmental influences.

When the rice is dry enough, mill processing begins. The first step is to remove the husks, which make up around 20% of the original weight. Once eliminated,...

When the rice is dry enough, mill processing begins. The first step is to remove the husks, which make up around 20% of the original weight. Once eliminated, the actual rice fruit, consisting of the endosperm, seedling, and silver membrane, emerges. Natural or whole grain rice arrives into your kitchen in this form.

Questions about questions Organic risotto rice 5 kg

FAQ-Bereich durchsuchen:

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).
