Lotus Foods Bhutan Red Rice (426g)
Bhutanese Red Rice has been grown for thousands of years at 8,000 feet in the fertile soil of the Paro Valley, irrigated with 1,000-year-old glacier water rich in trace minerals. With more potassium than Gatorade, and a significant amount of magnesium, this quick-cooking whole grain is a nutritional and culinary superstar. It will entice you with its complex, nutty, earthy flavor, soft texture and beautiful russet color.
A staple food of the Bhutanese people, heirloom red rice cultivation was declining due to the import of white rice from India. They are honored to be the first company to export from Bhutan - in fact Bhutanese Red Rice is the only product exported from the land of the Thunder Dragon. They have worked closely with their suppliers to give Bhutanese farmers access to a global marketplace. Ensuring this new source of livelihood means that this beautiful and wholesome rice is now safe from extinction and will be feeding families there, and here, for a long time to come.
Ingredients: Red Rice. Product of Bhutan.
