Of all the cereals, rice is the one with the most ancient farming traditions. The history of rice in Italy has been documented since 1400.
Today, rice is grown over an area of slightly less than two hundred thousand hectares, more than half of which in the Piedmont region alone.
The importance of rice in our diet and its nutritional properties are linked to its organic components and minerals: sugars, proteins, vitamins, fats and mineral salts. A grain of rice essentially consists of starch in particularly small granules, an additional factor that makes rice easy to digest.
Riseria Provera continues to offer classic varieties of Italian rice processed using traditional methods, a tribute to the specialities of the company’s homeland.
