A red rice medley of long and medium grain rice of three native red rice types: Lagonglong, M9, and M11. Grown by small cooperative farmers in North Cotabato, Philippines; considered one of the food baskets of the country with its rich lush lands and even rainfall year round, providing amazing climate and terroir.
The farmers practice biodynamic farming, a regenerative and more holistic form of organic farming that considers the farm as one organism and sowing, planting, and harvesting is done according to the celestial calendar.
Red rice is rich in fiber (more so than brown or black rice), as well as vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium; with magnesium helping to maintain a healthy blood pressure level, and calcium helping to build strong bones. Red rice also contains several types of antioxidants. A great standalone or a hardy replacement for white rice in dishes with curry, meats, and anything else!
