Rice, Forbidden, Organic



From Lotus Foods

Legend has it that this ancient grain, referred to as “longevity rice,” was eaten exclusively by the emperors of China to increase health and ensure a long life. This medium-size heirloom rice is treasured for its delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture, nutritional content, and beautiful deep purple color. Lotus Foods has been purchasing its Forbidden Rice® from small family farms in the Black Dragon River region of China's sub-arctic Northeast provinces for over 20 years. This whole grain is a natural source of magnesium, protein, and fiber.
