Baldo rice is a rice of great tradition, very versatile, used in the kitchen to make several recipes. Although this rice variety was introduced only in 1977, other more famous varieties are still often preferred today, but for the farmers of our areas this is the true "King of rice".
Especially in recent years, the doors of some of the most important cuisines in the world have opened up to this tasty, consistent rice, capable of masterfully cooking.
As mentioned, Baldo rice is perfect especially if you want to prepare a risotto. Let's see what the main reasons are:
Perfect resistance to cooking : Baldo rice is among the best rices when it comes to resistance to cooking. The grain, refined and consistent, keeps cooking perfectly without becoming floury, but on the contrary remaining compact even if it cooks for a few more minutes.
Rich in starch : Baldo rice releases a lot of starch during cooking, and for this reason it is recommended for the preparation of creamy and well-mixed risottos. It also has an excellent ability to absorb seasonings, enhancing the taste of the raw materials to which it is combined.
