Brown Jasmine Rice

ข้าวหอมมะลิ (Khao Hom Mali)
Jasmine rice (Thai: Khao hom mali), also known as Thai hom mali or Thai fragrant rice, is a long-grain variety of rice that has a sweet aromatic fragrance, a subtle pandan-like aroma. Jasmine rice is grown primarily in Thailand, and to a lesser degree in Laos, Cambodia, and southern Vietnam.

Brown jasmine rice retains the light tan outer layer on the rice grain. It has greater health benefits than white jasmine rice because it still has the bran. Brown jasmine rice has a flavor like oats and contains gamma oryzanol which can decrease cholesterol in blood vessels. Brown jasmine rice has vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin B and beta-carotene and it contains antioxidants which support the working of nervous system.
