This Bomba rice grain has the prestigious Designation of Origin seal from Valencia. It is known for its consistency and ability to absorb flavors during cooking. Its short, round shape has the unique feature of expanding in width, but not in length as it cooks, which allows it to increase up to three times its size. The result is a robust and tender rice with separate grains. Bomba rice is ideal for paellas, oven cooked rice and any other dish that requires the grain to soak all the flavor of the broth.
It is presented in a 500-gram burlap bag that allows the grain to breath.
