One of the most important food staples in the world is rice and lentils. They are one of the backbones of Grow Global’s agribusiness activities.
Soaking, pressure steaming and drying rice prior to milling produces parboiled rice. As a consequence of this process, nutrients are driven from the bran to the kernel, so that milling removes less of the rice’s nutritional value than it would do otherwise. Parboiled rice is firm and less prone to overcooking than other forms of rice. This makes it a key ingredient in commercial products such as canned or frozen foods. Fortification of parboiled rice with added vitamins and minerals is common, particularly in the US an EU. Long and Medium Grain Parboiled Rice are included in our products portfolio.
Pulses are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. They grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. The term ‘pulses’ is limited to crops harvested solely as dry grains, which differentiates them from other vegetable crops that are harvested while still green. Pulses are healthy, nutritious and easy to cook with. Our product portfolio includes Whole and Split Lentils.
