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.

Very good mix and flavor :)

Rather bland and can be overcooked very easily - prefer Lundberg wild rice.
Great to mix with vegetables or meat for a one dish meal
Good tasting rice

It is actually a mixture of brown rice and a little bit of red rice. Can actually mix it yourself if you have brown and red rice instead of buying this Volcano Rice. I thought it was something different.
