Rice is actually partially cooked rice. When the rice is still in the husk, it is soaked, steamed, dried and taken out of the husk. Therefore, the grains are stronger and can withstand longer cooking times without becoming mushy.
Parboiled rice is more nutritious than standard white rice and has a lower glycemic index.
