Be Part Of The Solution

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 organically 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.

Better For The Planet

We are ramping up our commitment to support farmers who are adopting practices that go beyond organic. Using the System of Rice Intensification or SRI, they can improve their yields and incomes with less water, seed and no agrochemicals. Look for the More Crop Per Drop icon on the front of our retail bags for rice that has been grown using water-saving SRI practices.

I love Lotus forbidden rice!

I haven't found anything equivalent to this rice, whenever I travel to the US I come back with several bags. Other varieties of black rice I've tried are very different, this has a special flavour and texture.

Thanks for your feedback!
