Brown basmati rice is a type of rice that is considered a whole grain and is a variety of basmati rice. Basmati rice is a long-grain rice known for its distinct aroma, fluffy texture, and delicate flavor. Brown basmati rice is a less processed and more nutritious version of white basmati rice.

The "brown" in brown basmati rice comes from the fact that the outermost layer, known as the hull and bran layers, are retained during milling, giving the rice its characteristic brown color. Unlike white rice, which has had the bran and germ removed, brown rice contains these parts, making it a whole grain. The bran and germ contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are beneficial for health.

Due to its nutrient-rich nature and lower glycemic index compared to white rice, brown basmati rice is often considered a healthier choice. It has a slightly chewy texture and a nuttier flavor compared to white basmati rice. It takes longer to cook than white basmati rice because of the presence of the bran layer.

People often choose brown basmati rice for its health benefits, including being a good source of fiber, promoting digestive health, potentially aiding in weight management, and providing essential nutrients like manganese, magnesium, and B vitamins.
