Organic Brown Jasmine RiceLotus Foods
Product of Cambodia.
The poetically named Jasmine Rice is also referred to as "fragrant rice" due to its floral aroma and flavor. Leaving the germ and bran layer intact intensifies its fragrance and nutty flavor while retaining the highest nutritional value. This nourishing whole grain rice has a lovely supple texture – unlike the chewy and bland taste of some brown rice.
The product is chiefly grown on small family plots by households belonging to the Damrei Romeal Organic Rice Cooperatives in Takeo. Cooperative members are using a set of growing methods, called the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which enable smallholder farmers to harvest more rice from their traditional varieties using less water, seed, land and no chemicals.
