Carnaroli Classic Rice - A 480g jar for 6 people
Carnaroli rice is considered the king of rice, thanks to its versatility and its wide use in the kitchen. Born in 1940, its name originates from Emiliano Carnaroli, at the time government commissioner of the National Risi Authority.
Long grain, firm consistency, excellent cooking resistance and high starch content make it an ideal product for those looking for the perfect risotto, where the al dente consistency meets the creaminess of the creaming.
Complete also from a nutritional point of view, Carnaroli is perfect for giving life to many traditional recipes or for those who love to bring an innovative impetus to the kitchen.
As mentioned, Carnaroli rice is perfect especially if you want to prepare a risotto. Let's see what the main reasons are:
Perfect resistance to cooking : a good risotto must have an excellent consistency. Thanks to its grain, which resists cooking perfectly, a good Carnaroli does not overcook, nor does it risk giving life to the pimp effect, but rather keeps each grain intact and grainy. For a pleasant sensation in the mouth.
Rich in starch : among the polysaccharides that make up the starch there is amylose, and Carnaroli is rich in it. This substance helps to make the grain consistent, but at the same time more starch is released during cooking than other varieties of rice. The result is the classic cremina, a fundamental factor for an impeccable risotto.
In this package you will find a 480g jar of our rice.
Why precisely 480g? The recommended portion of rice per meal is 80g: using our practical dispenser you will have 6 portions per jar.
Carnaroli rice is a superfine rice. Its large, oval-shaped grain has an opalescent central pearl, which helps absorb flavors and aromas during cooking thanks to its porous surface.
Rich in amylose and resistant to cooking, it is a perfect rice for the preparation of risottos and which today is among the most used in the kitchen, both by the great starred chefs and by families all over the world.
