What is Puffed Brown Rice?

Explained simply puffed brown rice is brown rice kernels with air blown through them at high pressure. The brown rice kernel is more nutritious than white rice as it is the whole rice kernel and as such retains much of its nutritional content including

  • High fibre content which contributes to a healthier heart, better blood sugar levels and more regular bowel movements. High fibre foods help to keep you feeling fuller for longer, helping to reduce the urge to overeat.

  • Has high nutritional value, being an excellent source of major B vitamins, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium and manganese.

Organic puffed brown rice, served with 100 grams of skim milk makes a hearty breakfast, packed full of nutrition and calcium while containing practically no fat.

How to make Puffed Brown Rice?

Organic puffed rice is usually made in commercial puffing machines. However there is a way you can make puffed brown rice at home. Simply follow these steps.

  1. Place 1 cup of brown rice in a saucepan containing two cups of water. Bring the mixture to the boil and then lower the temperature and allow the rice to cook for about twenty five minutes.

  2. Lightly grease a cooking tray and put to one side.

  3. Once the rice is cooked, evenly spread it around the cooking tray. Then heat the oven to 135 degrees Celsius and place the cooking tray in the oven.

  4. Allow the rice to bake for two hours.

  5. Remove the rice from the oven and allow it to cool.

  6. The rice should have separated into little clumps. Break these clumps into smaller pieces that are at least bite size.

  7. To get the puffed up texture you then need to fry the rice in oil. Add about an inch of cooking oil to a saucepan and then bring the oil to a temperature of around 190 degrees celsius. 

  8. When the oil is hot enough, carefully put the rice pieces into the oil and allow to fry for around one minute.

  9. Once puffy, remove the rice from the oil and place on a paper towel to dry.

  10. Add salt according to taste.

How do you make Puffed Brown Rice?

The only way to make puffed rice at home is to use the above method using oil. Of course, it would be healthier to make the puffed rice without oil, but there is no practical or safe way to do so without being able to access commercial puffing machines. A popcorn machine will not do the job.
