Jasmine BasmathiKing (Steamed)
Basmathi literally means ‘fragrant’. It’s one of the long-grain varieties that even diabetics can enjoy, due to its lower glycaemic index (GI) – in fact, it helps control blood glucose levels. Did you know that to achieve that unique flavour, the grains have to be aged for up to a year? Jasmine BasmathiKing rice is a white and extra-long grain that’s aromatic when cooked. Besides these health and taste benefits, it’s also high in natural minerals such as iron and vitamin B – and low in starch and fat.
This specialty rice is popular because of its taste and affordability. It’s suitable for nasi briyani, nasi tomato and nasi kandar.

Taste and texture
Once cooked, the grains can expand to twice their length and have a dry, fluffy and light taste – with a natural fragrance that’s sure to whet your appetite and complement Asian cuisine.
Lower glycaemic index
Basmati rice has a low glycaemic index (GI) score – used to measure the effect carbohydrates have on blood sugar levels. Foods with a lower score are digested more slowly, resulting in a steadier rise in blood sugar. This is crucial in controlling diabetes and boosting weight loss.
