Default Rice Identification

I am a housewife, recently shifted to Dubai.
I love rice as every other second person in this world, People say aged rice is good to opt for because it's good in taste and for health as well, I want to know how to identify between aged rice and new rice.

Help me if you know the answer.

Have you tried reading the label?

Also aged rice tends to be more expensive.

I know precisely what you mean. Indeed aged rice can be very tasty.

Basmati and related rices are often marked "aged" as this indicates certain desirable characteristics. Aged Basmati has a lower water content and a specific fragrance. You can check on the label or feel the scent of the bags. I love basmati rice so I go for the the scent if I cannot figure the info on the label.

You will find everywhere lulu supermarket, carrefour and mostly on those Indian/ Pakistani food stores.

I once heard that rice which is not aged is extremely white as compared to the aged rice ,which is dullish & less bright

Just saw the label after your reply. There isn't anything mentioned there like what type of rice is this. I can pay an extra bit for health but how to identify that the rice i am buying is aged.

Thats cool!
I have heard the same that aged basmati rice has some great aroma and when you cook it, it tends to be more longer and thinner in size.
Have you tried any of these brands? Which one is best?
