Italian Acquerello Carnaroli Rice

Carnaroli Rice - 2.2 lb/1 kg by Acquerello, Italy.

Acquerello carnaroli rice is grown using a crop rotation system. It is the only rice variety sown on the farm, thus eliminating the possibility of inadvertent hybridization with other varieties. After the harvest, the unhulled grains of Acquerello Carnaroli are aged for one year in Tenuta Colombara's temperature controlled silos. This 20-step processing technique renders starch, proteins and vitamins that are less water-soluble, improving the consistency of the grains and enabling them to absorb more cooking liquid. The rice germ is absorbed into the grains, giving them the nutritional value of brown rice. When cooked, the grains become tastier, larger, firmer, and do not stick together. After the aging process, the rice is refined and “whitened”. For this step in the transformation process, a helix machine is used to spiral the rice slowly downwards, gently rubbing grain against grain, keeping the grains intact and maintaining their nutritional values which can be easily lost with other bleaching methods. At the end of the process, Acquerello rice is perfectly polished to a honey color. Ideal for making any rice dishes-including risotto.
