Basmati Rice

Hello - I read somewhere that Basmati Rice is a better choice of white rice because it is gluten free - Is this true??

ALL rice is gluten-free. I have heard that some manufacturers put a flour coating on the rice to keep it from sticking before the user can cook it, and some people always RINSE their rice in a sieve before they cook it. Basmati Rice is treasured because of its wonderful flavor, but isn't any more nuitritionally-rich or gluten-free than any other white rice. And brown rice (including Basmati Rice) is simply rice with the hull still on, so that there are more vitamins and minerals and fiber, but still no gluten.

Re: Basmati Rice

My sum total knowledge of basmati rice is that it is an extra long grain rice that always tastes TWICE as good in an Indian restaurant than it does when I make it at home.
