Lotus Foods, Organic Volcano Rice, 15 oz (426 g)
By Lotus Foods8 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 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.

As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Diets rich in whole grains and other plant foods and low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
Lotus Foods rices are selected for superior taste, fast and easy cooking, and nutritional value.

This means more healthy rice choices for you and your family, a cleaner environment, and improved quality of life for farmers.
Better For You
A colorful blend of prized traditional brown and red rice grown on West Java's mineral-rich volcanic soil. Aromatic and nutrient-dense, with minerals often lacking in modern diets, Volcano Rice cooks in only 30 minutes producing moist and tender grains - transforming any rice dish into a special meal.
Better For People
Volcano Rice is grown by members of the Simpatik Organik Cooperative, some 2,300 households farming small plots in Tasikmalays, West Java. Our price premiums translate directly into more income, better health, and brighter prospects for these families.
Better For The Plant
Flooding rice fields consume 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 produce more crop per drop. And drained fields emit little or no methane. We're taking rice production beyond organic!
More Crop Per Drop
50% less water + 90% less seed = 3X more rice
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. Or just enjoy steamed plain with a vegetable, seafood or meat entree.

iHerb Customer Reviews
So delicious and nutritious. In addition to being gluten free and suitable for people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, this rare blend of organic brown and red rice grown on West Java's mineral-rich volcanic soil is rich in protein, dietary fiber, niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid (vitamin B9), manganese, selenium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron, calcium, potas sium, phytosterols, antioxidants and flavonoids, and is beneficial for people suffering from diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease, gastritis, acid reflux, nausea, indigestion, osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatism and even cancer: it helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood spikes keeping you full longer, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, increases appetite, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, and even reduces the risk of cancer. I love it: not only is it delicious and great in different recipes, but also it helps normalize my cholesterol levels and blood pressure and relieves the symptoms of my acid reflux and gastritis. Wonderful product. Highly recommended.
It's aromatic with an enticing aroma similar to basmati. The flavor is gentle and delightful, more rich than brown rice, less bold than wild rice. It's more expensive than brown but even on our limited budget, is worth it for the great taste and hopefully increased mineral nutrition. I'll be buying this on a regular basis and am very glad iHerb carries it.
