Pearled Grains

Pearled grains are those that have been formed lightly into round ball shapes. Pearled Grains are polished so the bran is removed which is why they are sometimes referred to as Polished Grains. One of the advantages of this process is that Pearled Grains typically cook faster over whole grains.

Perhaps the most common form of Pearled Grains commonly found is Pearled Couscous, however Riviana offers a variety of other high-quality pearled grain options such as barley, farro and more for many different applications.

Pearled Grains are often found in dishes like soups, pilafs and salads along with plenty of side dishes. You can even ground them into flour.Discover the perfect variety for any application and trust Riviana for the most wholesome and quality ingredients.
