Heirloom Forbidden Rice®
This medium-size heirloom rice is treasured for its delicious roasted nutty taste, soft texture, nutritional content and beautiful deep purple color.
Legend has it that this ancient grain, referred to as “longevity rice,” was eaten exclusively by the emperors of China to increase health and ensure a long life.
Lotus Foods has been purchasing our Forbidden Rice® from small family farms in the Black Dragon River region of China's sub-arctic Northeast provinces for over 20 years.
