It's hard to say much about rice. You either like the taste of the spice mixture or you do not. It's pretty bland overall so don't worry about it being too hot or salty tasting. Tasted "Fresh" if a grain can be fresh tasting? Lundberg is a well known brand and it's my understanding their rice comes from the USA. They do batch testing to ensure there are safe levels of Arsenic - yes rice contains traces of Arsenic as the plant pulls it out of the Soil. So I always try to buy USA grown Rice.
Of all the types of rice presented by this manufacturer, this rice has the most familiar and understandable taste. No less delicious than other products of this brand. Made with a mixture of whole grain brown rice and wild rice seasoned with a little garlic and spices. Portion is for two people. You can add fish, meat, chicken. And you can not supplement, everything is already very satisfying and tasty.
