Paella has become synonymous with Spain, for without the right rice, one cannot create a true paella!
Grown in the rich soils of the national protected L’Albufera Park of Valencia, both of these short-grain rices make the perfect ingredient for paella, arroz negro and risotto. Their high absorption rates (Bomba absorbs one-third more water than the traditional) allows them to soak up and hold the abundance of flavors in all of your favorite rice dishes.
To ensure freshness and the highest quality final product, our Matiz rices are packed in a sturdy cloth sack that allows the rice to breathe.
Nominal Arsenic Levels: In recent years it has come to light that all rice and rice products contain arsenic, due to the rice plant’s natural tendency to absorb it from the water and soil. In 2013, the FDA tested 1300 samples of rice and discovered that most rice has levels between 2.6 and 7.2 micrograms per 45 gram serving, which they consider to be safe levels. Matiz Paella rices both test below these levels at 1.5 mcg (traditional) and 2 mcg (bomba) per serving.
