MADAGASCAR RED RICE

$4.95
SKU D5014

Profile: Red rice has a rich, nutty, earthy flavor, a chewy texture, and a lovely russet color. Malagasy Red rice is 100 percent whole grain, which means it retains the nutritious bran layer. This medium grain is higher in potassium than Gatorade and has a substantial amount of magnesium. It's a nutritious and culinary powerhouse that takes only 30 minutes to prepare.

Details:

Red rice goes well with meat, fish, and vegetables in pilaf, stir-fry, salad, or steamed plain. Chefs like to serve it with meats that have a lot of taste, such as duck, venison, lamb, hog, wild mushrooms, eggplant, or roasted peppers.

Madagascar's major meal is rice. In a sea of green, it covers the Red Island. Lotus gets their red rice from families who grow around Madagascar's largest inland lake, Lake Alaotra. Lotus Foods is going beyond organic rice cultivation. Their farmers utilize SRI (System of Rice Intensification). This implies the rice fields will not be inundated (which uses 1/3 of the world's annual freshwater supply). SRI produces "More Crop per Drop" with significantly less water and seeds. Similarly, drained fields generate little or no methane.
