Jasmine rice in "cold corners" bag

'Boil in the bag' dishes are not usually seen as having much scope for innovation, however Masterfoods in Finland has repackaged its Uncle Ben's World of Rice range in a special bag with four 'cool corners', handy for consumers to hold the bag and open it without burning their fingers. A pack of 4 x 125g bags of Jasmine rice with four "cold corners" which claim to stop fingers from getting burnt when serving.This is an interesting innovation that could eventually be adapted to microwaveable meals, as these are also often too hot to handle straight out of the microwave.
