Basmati is a variety of long, slender-grainedaromatic which is traditionally grown inIndia, Pakistan andNepal.As of 2019, India accounted for 65% of the international trade in basmati rice. Many countries use domestically grown basmati rice crops. However, basmati is geographically exclusive to certain districts of India. Basmati rice has a typical pandan-like (Pandanus amaryllifolius leaf) flavour caused by the aroma compound 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline.Basmati grains contain about 0.09 ppm of this aromatic chemical compound naturally, a level that is about 12 times as much as non-basmati rice varieties, giving basmati its distinctive fragrance and flavour. This natural aroma is also found in cheese, fruit and other cereals. It is a flavoring agent approved in the United States and Europe, and is used in bakery products for aroma.
