rice cooks up very light, good value
Horrid stuff! It took 20 m items to cook and still tasted gritty. What's happened to Tesco range? Their original long train rice was very good and it's not available like so many products lately. Not happy!
Truth or Fib?
Is the nutrition declaration correct? Fibre at 7.6g/100g? Your basmati has only 0.5g/100g and long grain rice at different retailers is approx. 0.7g...
Its bad. Rather eat your stir fries a la carte
Firstly, I dont know where this rice came from. The only reason I bought this is because my 5kg bag of rice from the Asian store ran out. The grains separate from each other when cooked in a rice cooker and weirdly smells like artificial vanilla. When I cooked it, the grains turn out raw so I had to add a lot more water and recook in the rice cooker. If you eat with some stir fry or curry it would probably drown out the terrible taste. Was eating halfway, but I chucked in the bin because I just cant swallow it. Ate my remaining stir fry and compensated the carbs with bread -.-
I notice the fibre content is 7.6 g per 100g, whic
I notice the fibre content is 7.6 g per 100g, which is nearly 10 times more than other white long grained rice. Can Tesco please confirm that this is not an error and should be 0.76 g instead? This looks too good to be true.
Excellent rice, wash 3 times, one cup rice to 2 an
Excellent rice, wash 3 times, one cup rice to 2 and one quarter water. perfect in the rice cooker. it's all I use.
It has plastic feeling to it and i am worried it really does, please be aware!
It says the packaging is easy open and easy close. It really is !! How many times do rice packs split and bits go everywhere - not with this one. On top the rice is good as well.
Takes double the cooking time
Not easy cook as advertised. Took over 30minutes to cook. Double the time stated on the packet. Brought this as it said 15minutes and was supposed to save me time.
This rice is very good, it doesn't go all mushy like some rices do, I always buy this one over the well known branded ones.
