Nutritional information
Jasmine rice is usually sold as a white rice, although brown jasmine rice is sometimes sold. Jasmine rice has similar nutritional properties to other rice, supplying starchy carbohydrate, some protein and small amounts of dietary fibre, minerals and vitamins. The only vitamin present in significant quantities in the usual white jasmine rice is niacin (vitamin B3). Jasmine rice has virtually no fat but provides a delicate aromatic flavour.

Concerns that jasmine rice has a high glycaemic index (GI) are irrelevant if it is served with dishes containing a variety of other ingredients.

Storage
Jasmine rice should be kept in a covered container in a dry place. It will keep for a year or so.

Preparation
Jasmine rice needs a little less water than is used when cooking other varieties of rice. In general, 1 cup of jasmine rice (200g) needs 350 mL (1.4 cups of water). Use the absorption method and very low simmer heat so that the rice cooks from steam. Do not add salt during cooking as this destroys the delicate aromatic characteristic of the steamed rice.

Ways to use
Excellent with Asian dishes, especially Thai recipes as the aromatic flavour complements the spices used in Thai dishes.
Jasmine rice makes excellent fried rice. Cool and store the cooked rice in the refrigerator for 1-2 days for use in fried rice.
