Special Varieties of Rice

Venus

Venus is a whole grain Italian rice that maintains the crude fibre in the grain. This ensures a low glycemic index and guarantees a constant supply of energy, reducing the risk of accumulating fat.
Venus rice has a higher content of mineral salts such as selenium, manganese, zinc and iron than white rice and is gluten free.
It also has a high content of anthocyanins, which act as antioxidants that are useful to combat the effects of ageing and to reinforce the immune system.

Serving suggestions: this nutritious, perfumed variety of rice that is rich in antioxidants can be used in a variety of culinary preparations. It is excellent for risotto and rice salad but it is also a perfect accompaniment for vegetables, shellfish and white meat.

Cooking time: 40/45 minutes.
