Mahatma Brown Rice is know for its consistently high quality. It is a rice grain with only the outer hull removed. The fiber and nutrient-dense bran layers cover the inner part of the grain. These bran layers have a light brown color, and contribute a subtle nut-like taste and somewhat chewy texture. Natural brown rice is a good source of whole grain dietary fiber, naturally sodium free, cholesterol free, gluten free, Non-GMO Project Verified, and Kosher.
