Lotus Foods Organic Volcano Rice™Lotus Foods
Imported from Indonesia.
Volcano Rice is a mineral packed blend of traditional aromatic West Java rices grown on volcanic soils rich in magnesium, manganese and zinc – essential minerals so often lacking in modern diets. A colorful blend of nutrient-dense Sintanur brown rice and, whole grain red rice and lightly milled red rice that is reputed to restore vitality. It's no wonder the Javanese favor these healthy rices for their satisfying wholesome flavor. We're told that Sintanur, with a hint of vanilla-like Pandan aroma, is such a favorite with Javanese that they take it along when visiting other islands.
Volcano Rice is grown by a cooperative of Tasikmalaya family farmers using the System of Rice Intensification.
