Madagascar Pink Rice

Over the millennia, man has diversified his diet by developing more than 40,000 kinds of rice. Numbering among the most exotic is Madagascar pink rice. It hails from the Republic of Madagascar, an island state lying in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of Africa. Most of the pink rice grows near Lake Alaotra, the country’s largest freshwater lake, connected to an extensive wetland network, perfect for rice production. That unique environment, combined with a partial milling technique that retains roughly two-thirds of the bran, results in the pink color, lightly sweet, nutty taste and unique aroma, redolent of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. With such flavor notes, Madagascar pink rice works well for sweet and fiery Thai entrees and for rice puddings. It will transform just about any rice recipe into an extraordinary treat, in terms of both taste and visual appeal.

By retaining most of its bran, Madagascar pink rice is rich in essential minerals like manganese, magnesium and potassium, as well as disease-busting antioxidants. Its high fiber content promotes digestive health, reduces low density blood lipids and avoids spikes in blood sugar. Its nutritional value far exceeds that of white rice, but cooks up almost as quickly.

Responsible farming techniques are another reason to add Madagascar pink rice to your diet. Malagasy rice farmers no longer flood their fields, an old weed-control technique with a heavy environmental impact. Today’s farmers transplant young seedlings at wide intervals, encouraging deeper root growth and facilitating weed removal. The plants thus grow stronger, with a reduced need for herbicides, pesticides and fertilizer.

For the convenience of wholesale buyers, our Madagascar pink rice is available in bulk, in 11-pound cases. Individual shoppers may prefer our 5-pound bags. We also sell such other exotic rice varieties as Bhutanese red rice.
