Organic Black Rice. 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 it’s delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture, nutritional contentand beautiful deep purple color. Lotus Foods has been purchasing our 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.
