    Today I went to the grocery store to buy some wild rice, and I noticed another type of rice right next to what I normally buy. It's called Jasmine Rice. So a question entered my mind that the book of knowledge (internet) could not clearly answer. What is the difference between Jasmine Rice and the others?

    The nerdy and not too technical answer is that white, brown, jasmine and basmati and others are Old World rices, and slightly different than "wild rice" which is new world, which is more like a grass seed than a rice. But it's more like rice than wheat, barley or corn or other things that are also technically rices. which are all kinds of grass...

    Or maybe the difference is about $4/pound?

    nutritionally, brown rice (and brown jasmine rice is available to buy) is better for you than white (more complex carbs / fiber) and wild rice is even better than that.

    There's other differences among rices, depending on what your interested in you may have to ask a botanist or a nutritionalist.

    its like apples. you can have different types that will have different properties but essentially its the same thing. jasmin rice is simply white rice, not as long a grain as wild or basmati and is lightly scented with jasmin. as with most white rices, its recommended you rince in cold water twice before cooking and you cook it in twice as much water than the amount of rice (2 cups of water for 1cup of rice). bring the water to a boil, add the rice, reduce heat, put on the lid and let it cook (without lifting the lid or stirring) until all the bubbles disappear.

    jasmine rice is a the type of rice typically served at thai restaurants. it's very aromatic and floral at times. often considered one of the best rice types (take that basmati)

    Some kind of interesting feedback on this old thread of mine:

    Is BASMATI brown rice more nutritious than regular brown rice?:

    "...its recommended you rince in cold water twice before cooking..."

    Rinse the rice, not yourself.

    Wait, so the New South is better?
