Why You’ll Love Organic California Brown Basmati Rice
Hearty, grainy goodness in every bite, Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice never ceases to amaze those who come across it. Perfect for eating with stews, sauces, meats, and salads, it’s an exotic choice to have when craving rice with a nuttier flavor. To make matters even better, this organic brown basmati rice is just as tasty as it is good for you so you can dig in without guilt!
The health benefits of eating Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice
Brown rice versus white rice is a common debate, but luckily you can’t really go wrong with either. Both offer about the same nutritional content, although brown rice can pack in a bit more fiber and flavor due to the way it’s processed.
After rice harvested it goes through a procedure to remove the outer hull. Once this is done it leaves you with brown rice, while white rice is processed even further and has the bran layer removed. Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice keeps this bran layer, allowing you to get an intense, nutty flavor and a fiber boost that is good for colon health and weight management.
Fiber is most-known for its ability to keep bowel movements regular, and it is an immense benefit to colon health overall. It also slows digestion so that you can experience that full and content feeling for a longer period of time after consuming, as opposed to other foods that can leave you still feeling hungry. This is why consuming fiber-filled foods a wonderful way to lose and manage weight, and keep digestion healthy.
Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice also has a low glycemic index, or GI. A food has a GI that measures how quickly it will raise blood glucose (also known as blood sugar), and the higher a food’s GI, the more quickly it causes a sugar spike. That spike eventually leads to a sugar crash, but with a lower GI your body is less subject to experiencing this.
While this may seem like a surprise, there are also an abundance of macronutrients and micronutrients inside Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice, including:
- Dietary fat: Although fat gets a bad reputation, a certain amount is required for survival. Every serving of Lundberg Family Farms Organic California Brown Basmati Rice has 1.5 grams of fat, none of which is saturated fat, so it’s good for the body.
- Protein: Often called the building blocks of the body because it makes up many parts such as your nails, skin, hair, ligaments, and muscles. Protein also contributes to that feeling of fullness after eating, and offers a bit of an energy boost as well.
- B vitamins: This family of vitamins works wonders for blood health, which means that you’re getting plenty of oxygen delivered to the body, allowing you to feel energized and awake.
- Magnesium: This is a jack-of-all-trades and is able to act as a natural mood booster, alleviate migraines, and even help with PMS symptoms. It’s primarily it’s used for its anti-inflammatory power, which can help to prevent chronic diseases, obesity, and premature aging due to inflammation.

Reviews For Organic California Brown Basmati Rice
Based on 12 Reviews
I love that this rice is grown in California and not the southern U.S. Brown rice in California has a lower arsenic that brown rice grown in other parts of the U.S.
I try all the different types of Lundberg rice and enjoy all of them. The price is much better than the grocery store.
Lundberg Farms Brown Basmati Rice
I love Lundberg Farms rice, my parents' farm was north of the rice fields. It is delicious, and goes well with veggies and stir-fry. Also great in soup! I cannot tolerate grain, but this rice is loved by my belly.
I really like this rice. It has the perfect consistency and flavor for a basmati brown rice. I highly recommend it.
The best rice ever!
Lundgren Farms rices have been staples in our family since the 1980s. I feel blessed and spoiled by their delicious, nutritious offerings from their land. Thank you!
So yummy and chewy and nutty! I love the way it smells when it is cooking-I can hardly wait for it to be done!
Excellent product and almost 50% of here!
Exactly what it should be
This is perfectly delicious basmati rice - exactly as it should be. Organic, healthy, and it comes in a convenient, resealable bag. You get quite a lot for the price, too.
Excellent Rice, Never Rancid
I have an extraordinarily sensitive nose, and this is the only brand of rice i've bought that is never rancid. I LOVE brown rice of all kinds especially Basmati, i love the Velcro bag, i love that it's grown Organically and in America, and i love that Thrive carries it! Yay!
Like Indian restaurant
I've switched over to brown rice, and I really like this fragrant Basmati rice that tastes a lot like the one I usually get at my favorite Indian restaurant. There's nothing but organic brown rice in this and nothing else. Pure, natural rice that goes well with all kinds of sauces, especially my favorite brown curry and chicken. Thrive is offering this at a great price, less than at the local Indian grocer near where I live.

This rice is a very good value. The price is right an the amount given in each bag is great too.
This was my first experience with Basmati Rice, but I really enjoyed it. It had great flavor, and when I added a little feta cheese on top it was even better. This is a much healthier alternative to White Rice and a whole lot easier to digest. I really like this rice.
