This rice is completely unique, using a patented process with over 20 steps to make the ultimate risotto rice.
- It’s the tastiest, because it’s the only rice whitened with a helix, a gentle method which leaves the grain intact.
- The process: Only the rice grains that pass the 20 processing and selection steps become Acquerello. One of them is the helix, still considered the best method for rice whitening: rice grains rub one against the other, avoiding any damage.
- Aging: Starch is stabilized, thus the rice grain will release less starch during cooking and will increase liquid absorbtion
- Reintegrating the germ: Germ is the vital part of a rice grain. It contains most of the vitamins and micronutrients of rice. During whitening the germ separates from the rice grain, but thanks to a patented process we are able to restore it within the grain, enhancing its nutritional values.
