Red Rice Powder
Origin: Kerala, India
Flour 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. 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.
The Red Rice Flour is made from Single Boiled Red Rice (which retains 60% of the bran). Roasting minimizes the moisture content in the Flour.
