Contigo® Enriched American Jasmine Rice is also know as “fragrant rice.” Jasmine rice gets its name not from its fragrance, but from its color. The color resembles that of a jasmine flower, a pale tint of yellow.
Contigo® Enriched American Jasmine Rice is very similar to basmati rice, but jasmine rice does not have as strong a flavor or as firm a texture as basmati.
