What is the Difference Between Instant Rice and Regular Rice?

Instant Rice (however also commonly referred to as ‘Pre-cooked Rice’ is rice which has already been cooked before being packaged and bought by consumers. Instant rice is normally dried to a low moisture level so that it is more suitable for packaging and storing. 

Because the rice comes precooked, it means that it’s significantly quicker to cook than regular rice. Because of its quick cook time, Instant Rice is particularly popular with consumers who have busy schedules but still want the ability to make a good quality meal.
