Rice carbohydrates are easily assimilated because, being organized in much smaller grains than those of other cereals, your stomach digests them immediately and transforms them into prompt energy.
– It supports the Italian rice supply chain through the “We are all rice grains” project
– Produced with a lowered environmental impact: we recycle production waste and convert it into the energy we use in our plant, reducing CO2 emissions
