Organic Red Rice from Madagascar by Lotus Foods
Red Rice has a complex, nutty, earthy flavor, toothsome texture and beautiful russet color. Malagasy Red rice is 100% whole grain, which means that it retains its wholesome bran layer where the nutrients are stored. This slender medium grain has more potassium than Gatorade, and a significant amount of magnesium. Quick-cooking (about 30 minutes), it is a nutritional and culinary superstar.

Red Rice is perfect for pilaf, stir-fry, salad, or steamed plain to accompany meat, fish, or vegetable entrées. Chefs like to pair it with big flavor foods like duck, venison, lamb, pork, wild mushrooms, eggplant, or roasted peppers.

Rice is the staple food of Madagascar. It blankets the Red Island in a sea of green. Lotus sources their organic red rice from families farming around Lake Alaotra, Madagascar's major inland lake. Lotus Foods is taking rice production beyond organic. Their producers use System of Rice Intensification (SRI) practices. This means tha the rice fields are not flooded (which consumes 1/3 of the earth's annual freshwater supplies). SRI requires a lot less water and seeds to produce what they call "More Crop per Drop." Drained fields also emit little or no methane.
