Rice is naturally gluten-free. It’s a beneficial carbohydrate and a great source of energy. Brown rice in particular is one of the world’s great wholegrain foods. A great source of fibre with a beautiful nutty taste.
There are dozens of different types of rice grains that provide different textures, tastes and nutritional value. It is considered a staple food for more than half of the world's population - particularly Eastern and Southern Asia. White rice is the most common type of rice consumed, however brown rice (wholegrain rice) is becoming increasingly popular in western countries due to the health benefits it provides. Rice is primarily composed of carbohydrates, small amounts of protein and virtually no fat with the specific levels varying depending on the type of grain.

Beautiful fluffy white rice
Coming in short-grain, medium-grain and long-grain varieties, white rice is polished which increases the cooking quality and tastiness of the rice. Short-grain rice contains more starch causing it to become soft and sticky when cooked whilst long grain rice, such as Jasmine and Basmati rice, contains less starch meaning the grains don't stick together due to them being drier.
Amazing brown rice
Wholegrain Brown is not polished like white rice, so the nutritious 'bran layer' doesn't get removed in the milling stage. This gives brown rice its characteristic nutty flavour and firmer texture. Fibre is responsible for slowing down the rate at which carbohydrates are converted into glucose in the bloodstream, helping to stabilise blood sugar levels. Learn more about rice here.

Making a difference in the Solomon Islands and PNG
SunRice’s commitment to Make a Difference to our Consumers around
the world extends beyond simply providing nutritious food. We have also
invested significantly in developing and distributing vitamin enriched
rice products designed to improve nutrition in our Papua New Guinean and
Solomon Islands communities where health is a key issue.
SolRice has been working with the Solomon Islands Government to promote the vitamin enrichment of rice across the country. Enrichment of rice has been mandated in the Solomon Islands, taking effect from 1 August 2019. Utilising our knowledge and experience in PNG, SolRice has been able to work with the Solomon Islands Government to ensure rice products meet the nutritional needs of our customers and the benefits of vitamin enriched products are understood throughout the region.
Learn more about how we make a difference in PNG and the Solomon Islands through our program to vitamin enrich 100% of our products here.

Highly nutritious animal products made from rice by-products
The main by-products of rice production are rice hull, rice bran and broken rice. Through our CopRice business we use 98% of those by-products and turn them into new and valuable high quality products including nutritious stabilised rice bran, rice flour, quality stockfeed products and companion animal food, animal bedding and pet litter. Here’s a case study on how our highly nutritious animal products benefit dairy herds.
Maximising production from high performance dairy herds requires a broader focus than pasture alone. That’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive feed solution to meet a cow’s nutritional needs during every step of her production cycle for optimum health and productivity.
Throughout the course of a year, the nutritional requirements for a dairy cow change according to her metabolic state, stage of lactation, level of milk production, quality and availability of pasture. Understanding the relationship between these factors is critical to optimising milk solids production, and maintaining the health and wellbeing of the herd. Combining Australian cereal grains with research-tested nutrition, field-proven studies and industry leading quality assurance programs, our nutritionists deliver a tailored nutrition program to meet the needs of dairy herds across their lactation cycle.
