Hello and happy holiday. Yes, you may use red elephant brand jasmine rice for Pesach according to Sephardic Halacha. Any unenriched rice can be used over the holiday including unenriched Carolina rice as well; you must check the unenriched Carolina, however, as opposed to not having to check the jasmine rice.
