Pathum rice is Thailand’s newest rice type which can be cultivated in irrigable areas. It is fragrant and soft like Jasmine rice- especially freshly harvested, early season rice which have their notable scent. This rice type is considered a great choice for consumers who prefer softer rice at a reasonable price.
Glutinous rice has smaller and more oval grains. It is covered with a strong husk; when the rice is still young the husk is green before maturing into a golden yellow or maroon-purple tone depending on the type. The notable quality of this rice type is the stickiness of the grains once steamed, and its special aroma.
