DescriptionLegend tells us that this ancient grain was once eaten exclusively by the Emperors of China. Our most popular rice is fabled to enrich health and ensure longevity. This medium-size heirloom rice is treasured for its delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture, and beautiful deep purple color. Forbidden Rice contains a class of flavonoid antioxidants called anthocyanins and, according to Chinese herbal medicine, is considered to be a blood tonifier. A striking presence on any plate, this once forbidden indulgence is now a wholesome everyday rice. It pairs beautifully with all cuisines — use it steamed plain, in a pilaf, stir-fry, salad, or pudding. (from Lotus Foods)Claims
