By Lotus Foods9 Reviews
Expiration Date: Nov 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Bamboo is the true tree of life and nature's model of sustainability. We infuse our organic sushi rice with BamBoo extract, made from the Moso species of bamboo that grows in the virgin forests of Changde China. When cooked, this California rice produces the aroma of a bamboo forests, a light vanilla taste and an explosion of health giving nutrients. Makes an especially pretty plate presentation, sushi and dessert pudding.

iHerb Customer Reviews
At first I thought the taste was a little strange, and probably most people would agree. There is a very mild bitterness, not unlike green tea that offsets the sweetness of the rice. That is ultimately why I love this stuff now and why I made it my staple rice. The complexity makes meals a bit more sophisticated and interesting. The texture is soft and a little sticky which is another reason I love it so much. Take a little care when cooking, it goes from done to overcooked very quickly due to its delicate nature.
This is another Lotus Foods rice that I love. It is a tasty sticky rice that I use in stews. I haven't used it in veggie burgers yet, but I will, along with Black Forbidden Rice, its higher protein sister. It cooks quickly enough aand has a great story too tell, what with it being infused with bamboo. Try some soon!
