Basmati rice like other types of rice is an excellent source of energy. It is high in carbohydrates and proteins, but contains very small amount of fats and no cholesterol. Moreover, it is gluten free, which makes it an ideal stable food product for those who cannot tolerate gluten.
The cooked grains are dry and fluffy, so they make a nice bed for curries and sauces.
Basmati rice is a unique species of rice originating from India. Just like all species of rice, basmati is available in white or brown versions, depending on the extent of the milling process. Like jasmine rice, it has its own unique smell. In the case of basmati, this smell is due to the presence of a chemical called 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline, which is found in basmati rice at about 90 parts per billion. That's about 12 times more than in other types of rice, giving basmati its special aroma. Brown basmati rice is comparable to other types of brown rice in nutrient content (although it does contain about 20% more fiber compared to most other types of brown rice), and white basmati rice is comparable to other types of white rice.
