Lotus Foods Pink Rice

$3.99

15 ounces

Organic Pink Rice is elusively aromatic of cinnamon and cloves. This soft, supple and nutritionally dense rice is milled to retain 66% of its wholesome bran layer, which allows it to cook in only 20 minutes!

Our Organic Pink Rice is grown on family farms in Indonesia. Even better, it’s grown using SRI farming practices (what we call More Crop Per Drop™) so farmers can harvest more rice using less water and pesticides while reducing methane off-gassing and physical labor for women. Visit our MCPD page to learn more about this amazing system that’s changing how rice is grown around the world.


WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

But for the keen attention of one farmer, Jean Baptiste Rakotomandimby (known as Dista), this unique Malagasy rice variety may have been lost forever. Grown from a single seed, Madagascar Pink Rice amazed people with its abundant growth and satisfying, subtly sweet flavor. Elusively aromatic of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, this soft supple rice is also nutritionally dense, milled to retain most of the wholesome bran layer. In the Lake Alaotra region, where this rice is produced, locals claim that eating this rice has improved their health.

Madagascar Pink Rice will transform any rice dish into a special meal. Use it steamed plain, in a pilaf, stir-fry, salad or pudding.

Madagascar Pink Rice is grown by households of the Koloharena Cooperative of Amparafaravola using a more sustainable set of practices called the System of Rice Intensification (SRI). SRI enables small family farmers to harvest more rice using less water, seed, land, and no chemicals. Lake Alaotra's marshy shores are home to the critically endangered Alaotran Gentle Lemur. It is hoped that SRI will help reduce the degradation of the lemur's dwindling habitat by making existing land more productive without the need for polluting chemicals. Visit our MCPD section to learn more about this amazing system that is changing the rice-growing world.
