Why we love it

Why eat plain rice when you can opt in for forbidden, organic rice? Legend has it that this rice was a favorite amongst Chinese emperors because it ensured healthier, longer lives. So you can bet we're gonna start eating this rice more often. And if you're looking to add more magnesium, protein, and fiber into your life, this rice has your back.

How it does good

Using smart agricultural practices to save water

Rice production uses around one-third of the planet's annual renewable fresh water, but Lotus Foods supports More Crop Per Drop™—a smart agricultural practice that protects and restores natural resources such as fresh water, improves incomes and quality of life for farmers, especially women, and reduces climate impact. These practices also cut in half the time that women have to spend transplanting and weeding, lowering their risk for health issues.

  • responsible sourcing

    Lotus Foods sources organic and Fair Trade rice from India, China, and Southeast Asia using smart agricultural practices that use a lot less water than other farms.
  • low carbon footprint

    Flooded rice fields emit methane gas, which contributes to global warming. Lotus Foods combats this by reducing their methane emissions by 40% with More Crop Per Drop™. This technique uses half the amount of water to keep fields moist but not continuously flooded.
  • Certified B Corp
  • Certified Non-GMO

How to use it

This rice is great as a side or in stir fries, pilafs, puddings, or even breakfast cereals!

About the Brand

Lotus Foods

Lotus Foods

The Lotus Foods founders first fell in love with black rice while traveling in China. The rice was typically called “tribute rice”, or “longevity rice” because it was reserved for Chinese Emperors to ensure their good health and long life. In 1995, the founders started importing black rice, calling it Forbidden Rice® after the Forbidden City, the Chinese Imperial palace. They also work hard to make sure they employ sustainable practices and treat farmers fairly.
