Bomba is the supreme strain of rice in all of Spain. Bomba absorbs three times its volume in broth (rather than the normal two), yet the grains remain firm and delicious. For the perfect paella, there is no substitute.

Bomba is an ancient strain of rice that matures very slowly. Ours is grown in in the Albufera Nature Reserve near Valencia with no pesticides or herbicides. Bomba rice produces an exceptionally dehydrated grain when it is harvested, because it has taken such a long time to mature. This enables it to absorb 30% more broth than ordinary rice.

Until recently, many feared that the strain would become extinct. Bomba had all but disappeared because it requires intensive care to flourish. Fortunately, alert gourmet chefs demanded this exceptional rice, so that today Bomba is once again available for the pleasure of discriminating food lovers.

Rice is the most important ingredient in paella, which is the reason many paellas are called "arroces" in Spain. This special paella rice is very different from Italian Arborio rice, which is bred to be creamy, and Asian rice, which is meant to be sticky. Substitution of these strains will result in a soupy or mushy paella.
