Lotus Foods rices are selected for superior taste, fast and easy cooking, and nutritional value. We partner in fair trade with small family farmers to preserve local biodiversity and grow rice more sustainably. This means more healthy rice choices for you and your family, a cleaner environment, and improved quality of life for farmers.

Better For You

Legend has it this ancient grain, referred to as 'longevity rice,' was reserved for the emperors of China. Treasured for its delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture and beautiful deep purple color, Forbidden Rice is a natural source of antioxidants called anthocyanins—purple pigments also found in blueberries and acai—but without the sugar. A dramatic presence on any plate, this wholesome rice cooks in only 30 minutes. Now you can eat like an emperor every day!

Better for People

Forbidden Rice is grown on hundreds of small family farms in Heilongjiang, the Black Dragon River region of China's northeast provinces. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health, and brighter prospects for these families

Suggested Use

Combine 1 3/4 cups water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Fluff and serve.

A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio. 1 cup raw rice yields 3 cups cooked rice.

Use in any rice dish or cuisine, from savory to sweet. Great for pilafs, puddings, salads, soups, stir-fries and stuffings. Makes a nutritious breakfast cereal, including jook. Or just enjoy steamed plain with vegetable, seafood or meat entree.
