Rice Part One
Play • 28 min

Rice is staple food for over half the world’s population, and when you think of how the crop grows, an image of shimmering paddy fields, with ankle deep water springs to mind. 

In this episode of The Science Behind Your Salad we discover that this method of rice production is a huge contributor of greenhouse gases and so the tide is turning away from the paddy field system, towards something called Direct Seeded Rice. 

We also discover the way to cook perfect, plump, fluffy rice.
