Parboiled rice is rice that has been boiled in the husk. Parboiling makes rice easier to process by hand and improves its nutritional profile. Parboiling rice drives nutrients, especially thiamine, from the bran into the grain, so that parboiled white rice is 80% nutritionally similar to brown rice.
