Matiz Valenciano Paella Rices


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.

Nutrition Facts

Arrocerías Antonio Tomás, a family-owned and operated company founded in 1962 by Antonio Tomás, works directly with the rice farmers of the Albufera Nature Reserve, a national park in the bay south of Valencia that is an important habitat and breeding ground for numerous types of waterfowl. Antonio Tomas combines innovation and respect for the environment with the centuiries old tradition of rice production in Spain.

Albuhaira, the little sea, was the name given by the Moors to this pristine bay south of Valencia, one of Spain’s most valuable wetland regions, and one of only three designated Denomination of Origin rice growing regions in Spain.  The farmers who sow rice at the edge of the lake are required by law to respect the ecological balance of this sensitive area. The flat marshland criss-crossed with channels is one of the most famous rice-growing areas in Europe.
