IRRI-9 v. IRRI-6 Long Grain Rice: Who Do You Think Would Win?

by Trado Logie Enabling Global Trade Through Technology

The fiasco between the two dominant breeds of Pakistani long grain non-Basmati Rice, the IRRI-6 Long Grain Rice, and the IRRI-9 has been an ancient one. Despite having almost identical features on the structure and premium quality part, both the varieties of basmati rice is favored over the other by bon vivant in Pakistan and all across the globe.

Rice is a topic that everyone from the remotest corners of the world is familiar with. It is the most widely consumed staple food accompanying wheat and other cereal grains. Rice has an endless variety of taste, aroma, and dimension specific to diverse geographic conditions. As a natural response to the gigantic variety, rice is broadly classified into Long Grain, Medium Grain, Short Grain, Thai, Vietnamese, Basmati, and Non-Basmati all of which are available in yet another three classifications i.e. parboiled, white and steam rice. And to a far extent, only non-Basmati Rice has been the trend in all fragrant long grain rice. Various luxury and non-luxury cuisines of the world comprise the touch of non-Basmati Rice widely grown in various parts of India. 

Non-Basmati Rice is the choice of the majority of rice users in Middle-East, Western Africa and other importing nations for its affordability and Basmati-like taste and structure. This is precisely the condition when the tug of war between IRRI 9 Long Grain Rice and IRRI-6 Long Grain Rice was initiated.

In terms of specifications, IRRI-6 Long Grain Rice has 6.00 MM of average grain length, whereas IRRI-9 attributes 6.80 MM. And that wraps up all the 'differences' between two varieties of non-Basmati rice from a single sub-category. The rest of the characteristics, right from its landscape origin i.e. Pakistan, shape i.e. medium-long slender, cooking properties i.e. easy and fluffy, nutritional content i.e. affluence in protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, affordability, taste, and aroma, are ‘analogous’.
