  • $ 5.49 USD

A long grain nutty flavored heirloom organic black rice, we truly believe it's the greatest black rice in the world. Sourced directly from small cooperative farmers from the lush agri-tropical lands in North Cotabato, Mindanao; considered the food basket of the Philippines. The black rice is an heirloom grain indigenous to the mountain area in Antipas, North Cotabato.

Our farmers use BIODYNAMIC farming, a deeper and more holistic form of organic farming that treats the farms as one organism and the farmers sow, plant, and harvest according to the Sun, Moon and planets, creating amazing soil and thus rice.

Black rice is hailed as a SUPERFOOD because of its many health benefits, such as being high in fiber and rich in nutrients & minerals such as Vitamin E, Calcium, Iron, and Magnesium. Black rice is chock full of protein and low in carbs, more so than any other rice, so it provides a steady release of energy. It’s also rich in a type of antioxidant called anthocyanins, similar to blueberries and acai; however, black rice has the HIGHEST concentration of the three. Appealing to all of the senses, this delicious aromatic grain is a great compliment to any meal.
