I love this Bhutanese red rice: 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.

This is really 2 cups worth. I would prefer a different brand with larger servings

This rice is nice, but don't expect the same texture as white rice. It is very much like brown rice as it is a small grain with a chewy texture and nutty flavour. Delicious for wholegrain fans.
