Red Rice Flakes
Origin: Kerala, India
Rice Flakes made from
Red Rice with 60% Bran
Red rice is the unrefined or unpolished version of the white rice. To process the rice into the variety we buy in stores, it is stripped of its outside hull and bran. That makes it lighter and faster to cook. Brown and Red rice on the other hand has only the hull removed. It retains the bran and therefore its natural wholeness. This makes it a rich source of proteins, calcium, magnesium, potassium and fibre.
These Red Rice Flakes are made from beaten Single Boiled Red Rice (which retains 60% of the bran). It is then lightly roasted to minimize the moisture content.
