Interra International trades a wide variety of rice types from all over the globe. The largest market is in milled white rice, often referred to as “polished”. The outer husk is removed, and the layers of bran are milled until the grain is white. We also source organic, aromatic and brown rice for our customer’s needs.
100% Broken White Rice: Long grain kernels of white rice that has been broken into pieces by 100%. During the milling process, broken rice is separated from the white rice, whose shape remains intact.
Brown Rice: Medium to long kernels of rice from which only the hull has been removed. The light brown color is caused by the presence of bran layers. Brown rice may be eaten as is or milled into white rice. It has a somewhat chewy texture and a nut-like flavor.
Long Grain White Rice: Long, slender kernel, four to five times longer than its width. Cooked grains are separate, light and fluffy. It has a tender texture and smooth flavor.
Medium Grain White Rice: Shorter, wider kernel, two to three times longer than its width. Cooked grains are moist and tender, and have a greater tendency to cling together than long grain.
Organic Rice: Medium to long kernels that are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and growth hormones. This type is available in both white and brown colors.
Parboiled Rice: Medium to long kernels of rice that have been boiled in the husk through a steam-pressure process before milling. This procedure gelatinizes the starch in the grain, and creates a firmer, more separate grain for cooking purposes.
Origins: We offer a broad range of origins from US, Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, India, other Asian origins, and EU. We also, can assist with specialty options that might not be commercially available everywhere.
Packaging: We can deliver all the above types of rice in different configuration, such as: bulk vessel, bulk containers, bagged in 20 Kg, 45 Kg, 50 Kg and retail.
