So, if you now would like to know what those 4 types are and what the benefit of rice types aforementioned includes, AEC TRADE CENTER – PANTIP WHOLESALE DESTINATION has all prepared for you! 

1. Long Grain Rice (Kaww Jao)

Long Grain Rice is typically grown around the Central of Thailand and also nationwide, giving an aromatic scent like a pandan leaf. When cooked, it will have a plain flavor, with white color and decent texture, and not stick with each other.

The long grain rice nutrition facts include being an amazing source of manganese and containing adequate amounts of further nutrients, such as selenium and pantothenic acid. Also, some nutrients might be removed from the husking, the vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B1, B3, and iron are added afterward from the enrichment process.

2. Glutinous Rice (Kaww Neaw)

Glutinous Rice is typically grown in the Northeastern of Thailand. After being cooked, it will become sticky, with a pearly white color and a tip of sweetness. More than eating with savory dishes, such rice can be utilized as a base ingredient of local liquors or cooked as a dessert menu like mango sticky rice, too.

Talking about the glutinous rice nutrition, 1 paddle of it can give the same amount of energy as 2 paddles of non-glutinous rice. Moreover, such rice benefits also include countless vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid, phosphorus, iron, calcium, vitamin E, also vitamin B1 and B2. It will help you stay away from frequent hunger during the day, strengthen blood cells, slow the aging processes down, and many more.           

3. Jasmine Rice (Kaww Hom Ma Li)

Jasmine Rice is known as native to Thailand. As having pure white color after being cooked just like the color of jasmine flowers, this is simply how it is named. Additionally, beyond the decent color, it also gives an aromatic smell like jasmine flower, or sometimes pandan leaves, with soft texture and sweet taste that the Thais are falling in love with.

The benefit of rice in this section includes being rich in vitamin B1 that helps with the nervous system and muscles’ functions, vitamin B2 & B3 that helps keeping the gastrointestinal mucosa and skin in normal condition, and calcium that helps with maintaining your bones and teeth strong. 

4. Whole Grain Rice (Kaww Klong)

Whole Grain Rice is one type of rice that is not husked so typically it appears in dark colors, such as brown, dark brown, red, or even dark red color. Despite the not-very-attractive color, the rice nutrition facts of it are incredibly amazing–full with carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins, and fiber.
