Paella Rice is an all-natural blend of authentic Calasparra rice, fragrant herbs and vibrant spices, creating a time-saving shortcut to preparing traditional paella.
Paella Rice is an aromatic combination of traditional Calasparra rice blended with classic seasonings, creating a quick and convenient shortcut to preparing authentic paella. Spanish short-grain rice is the most commonly used paella rice because of its superior ability to absorb liquids up to 3 times its volume.
Spanish Calasparra rice is also ideal for paella because of its leisurely maturing process , which is 30% slower than other kinds of rice. Harvested since the 14th century, this rice and its extended growing cycle produces exceptionally dehydrated kernels that are ready to absorb even more of the tasty sauces and flavors of paella broth.
Pure saffron, an essential paella spice with exceptional, unique flavor, lends the rice its wonderful golden yellow hue, while other premium herbs, spices and aromatics give the rice its classic flavor, including garlic, onion, red chile flakes, paprika and turmeric.
