This product retains the flavors of the broth in a similar fashion to other Valencian rice varieties (e.g. Bahía rice), with the advantage that it does not break if cooked for too long; it only expands and wrinkles a little. This peculiarity allows it to keep its starch, and by doing so always come out in separate grains rather than sticking together. Due to its ability to expand, bomba rice requires more liquid than other types of rice.

Many people consider bomba rice a gourmet product, perhaps because it is relatively expensive. Given that 1 kilo can prepare a paella for twelve people and that our price here at Hola Gourmet is a great bargain, this rice may just be worth paying a little extra in exchange for its superb quality.

Origin: Valencia

Ingredients: Bomba rice

Net Weight: 1 kilo

Culinary uses:

This variety of rice is the most popular in our country. Instead of breaking like most rice varieties when the cooking time is miscalculated, this type only bulges and wrinkles a little. This trait allows the rice to keep its starch and to keep the grains separate, which makes it ideal for making paella and rice stews.


For La Salmantina, it all started in 1933 in La Vellés, a small town of Salamanca and the capital of the region of the Armuña. Originally, they were a small vegetable wholesale warehouse selling only bulk lentils and chickpeas: La Armunya lentils, pedrosillano chickpeas and Fuentesaúco chickpeas.

Today, these three varieties are protected by Denominación de Origen, an official certification of the product's quality and authenticity. The regulatory boards of La Armunya lentils, Pedrosillo chickpeas, and Fuentesaúco garbanzos guarantee the quality and origin of the legumes of this brand which has become so popular.

Over the years La Salmantina has added new products such as Lentil Pardina from Tierra de Campos, Beluga Lentils, Beans of Tolosa, Asturian Fabes and countless other delights of this wonderful land for growing vegetables.

    In Paella, The Most Important Ingredient Is The Rice
    José Andrés, one of Spain´s best culinary ambassadors, used to help his father, Mariano, prepare the most famous dish to ever come out of the Spanish kitchen: paella. Many Spanish families have large, shallow frying pans specifically designed for cooking paella called a paellera; some of these range up to one meter in diameter and can feed over a hundred people.
