    If you want fluffy Rice that doesn't stick together; wash it!
    The surface starch should be washed off, that is what makes the grains stick together.

    The difference between brown rice and white rice is that the hulls haven't been removed from brown rice.  White rice has been "polished" by having the hulls removed and often washed.

    Organic brown rice isn't likely to have been washed, milled or treated so dirt and pests may not have been removed.

    Most American produced white rice has been washed and enriched so if you wash it at home you remove nutrients that have been added.  I always wash foreign-produced white rice.

    I think its a good idea to wash all rice before cooking. Organic rice may have more insect parts in it. You sort of have to remember that organic is a loose term that people like to through around but many are unaware of the meaning or implications of growing Organic.
