Basmati is a variety of long, slender-grained aromatic rice which is
traditionally from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, basmati rice has a "medium"
glycemic index (between 56 and 69) opposed to regular white rice with a glycemic
index of 89, thus making it more suitable for diabetics as compared to certain
other grains and products made from white flour.
