rice

Rice has many different terms in the Filipino language… Cooked rice (steamed) is called kanin and accompanies most meals. Uncooked rice is called bigas. Rice still with the husks on is called palay.

Expensive special upland varieties like Milagrosa, Sampaguita, and Dinorado possess distinctive flavors.
