Alce Nero organic Arborio rice is grown in Italy following strict regulations on organic farming, which is among the most demanding as it requires a significant amount of manual work.

This variety is named after the town of Arborio, which is situated in the Italian region of Piedmont. 

Arborio rice is characterised by short and large pearl white grains which guarantee excellent firmness when cooked, making it ideal for preparing creamy risottos and rice puddings.

The high presence of amylopectin starch is what gives risotto its creamy texture and starchy taste that blends well with other flavours.

About the producer:

Founded in 1978 Alce Nero represents more than a thousand organic farmers, beekeepers and producers who have since the 70s striven both within Italy and farther afield to produce delicious, healthy, and nourishing food that comes from sustainable agriculture which respects the land and promotes a new way of eating and living. 

The raw organic ingredients used in their products are free from chemicals and processed using technologies which protect their nutritional and organoleptic integrity.
