Lotus Foods, Organic Mekong Flower Rice, 15 oz (426 g)
By Lotus Foods2 Reviews
Expiration Date: Apr 2017
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.

The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Better For You
This popular Cambodian jasmine rice is called Phka Malis, which means jasmine flowers. We love its floral aroma, soft, slightly sticky texture and fast cooking time, and know you will too. A perfect choice for elegant and everyday meals.
Better For People
Mekong Flower Rice is grown on small family plots by members of the Damrei Romeal Organic Producers Federation, Takeo Province. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health, and brighter prospects for these families.
50% less water + 90% less seed = 3X more rice
More Crop Per Drop
Better For The Planet
Flooding rice fields consumes up to 1/3 of the earth's annual freshwater supplies. Our producers use System of Rice Intensification (SRI) practices, which require a lot less water and seeds to product more crop per drop. And drained fields emit little or no methane. We're taking rice production beyond organic!
Combine 1 1/2 cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 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. Or just enjoy steamed plain with a vegetable, seafood or meat entree.
