Golden Sela is also a parboiled version of 1121 Extra Long Grain Basmati rice, with a more yellowish hue. The reason it has a yellow hue is because the rice is parboiled with the natural brown husk, and is dehusked after being parboiled. Due to the rice being parboiled with its husk it absorbs some of the additional nutrition from the husk and is a more nutrient dense rice. Golden Sela basmati rice cooks into a fluffy, firm and separate grain rice. A1's most popular Golden Sela rice is Chandni Chowk Golden Sela Basmati Rice, available in bulk 40 lb bags.
