Bomba rice enjoys a reputation and special recognition as it has very unique characteristics. It is an ancient variety whose first written references are in 1913 (year of creation of the Swedish Rice Station). It is a variety of very low production that, however, has continued to be cultivated due to its peculiar culinary behavior that makes it highly appreciated by the consumer. First of all, it is a rice with a great capacity for absorbing flavor, just like the other rice varieties of the Denomination of Origin Arroz de Valencia. The pump is also characterized by offering us a firm and loose grain. Once cooked, the grain evolves positively, since as the grain cools it acquires a greater consistency (unlike most commercial varieties) and exudes part of the liquid absorbed during cooking, making it more tasty and juicy a few minutes after removal. of fire. Another important advantage when using the pump is its resistance to overcooking. Once the starch is gelatinized, the grain opens transversely instead of longitudinally, so it maintains a pleasant texture even if we prolong cooking for a few minutes after it has been cooked.
