Lotus Foods Bhutan Red Rice - 6 x 15 oz
Lotus Foods rices are selected from superior taste, fast and easy cooking, and nutritional value. We partner in fair trade with small family farmers to preserve local biodiversity and grow rice more sustainably. This means more healthy rice choices for you and your family, a cleaner environment, and improved quality of life for farmers.
Better for you:
This long grain Red Rice is 100% whole grain which means it retains all of its wholesome bran layer, where the grain’s nutrients are stored. It cooks in only 30 minutes, producing toothsome yet tender and slightly aromatic grains. Add more color, taste and nutrition to all your favorite rice dishes.
Better for people:
We source our organic Red Rice from families farming around Lake Alaotra, Madagascar’s major inland lake. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health and brighter prospects for these families.
Better for the planet:
Flooding rice fields consumes up to 1/3 of the earth’s annual freshwater supplies. Our producers use System of Rice Intensification (SRI) practices, which require a lot less water and seeds to produce what we call More Crop Per Drop. And drained fields emit little or no methane. We’re taking rice production beyond organic!
