Rice Vermicelli (200g) by Wai Wai

Thailand is amongst the top rice producing and exporting countries in the world and as such, this grain forms the basis of a staple diet for the Thai people, who consume it in one of many forms, varieties and preparation styles at least three times a day. So entrenched is rice in the culture and history of Thailand that actual rice hulls have been found in archaeological artifacts, such as broken pieces of pottery, dating back to the sixth century!

The term rice vermicelli, is often used to describe thin rice noodles, much like those popularly eaten by the Chinese, however, it goes by many other names too: In Hokkien, rice vermicelli is known as 'bee hoon,' in Burma, as 'kyar-zun,' in Thailand, as 'sen mee' and in Vietnam, as 'bún.' Rice vermicelli is not to be confused with glass noodles, which are made from Mung bean flour and appear transparent when cooked, whereas rice vermicelli, as its name implies, is made from rice flour and as such turns a whitish color when cooked.

Wai Wai is the top manufacturer of rice vermicelli noodles in Thailand, which constitute a hugely popular component of the cuisine. They are perhaps most famously used in Mee Krob: a dish of deep fried rice vermicelli and sweet and sour sauce. Rice vermicelli are also commonly used in rice noodle soup and are simply delicious when seasoned with oyster sauce or fish sauce and served with stir fried meat and crispy green vegetables.

Made from rice flour and water, rice vermicelli offers the nutritional benefits of rice itself, which is a rich source of thiamin, fiber, iron, calcium and vitamin B1. Furthermore, since it is gluten free, it can also form an essential part of a gluten-free diet. Wai Wai (200g) dehydrated rice vermicelli comes in a transparent plastic packaging and is a must have for all Asian cuisine enthusiasts.
