Volcano Rice is a mineral- and antioxidant -packed blend of traditional aromatic West Java rices grown on volcanic soils rich in magnesium, manganese and zinc – essential minerals so often lacking in modern diets. A colorful blend of nutrient-dense Sintanur brown rice, whole grain red rice and lightly milled red rice that is reputed to restore vitality due to its high mineral, fiber and antioxidant content, it’s no wonder the Javanese favor these healthy rices for their satisfying wholesome flavor. We’re told that Sintanur, with a hint of vanilla-like Pandan aroma, is such a favorite with Javanese that they take it along when visiting other islands. Volcano Rice can transform any rice dish into a more flavorful and nutritious meal.
Volcano Rice is grown by a cooperative of Tasikmalaya family farmers using the System of Rice Intensification. With SRI they are able to increase their production and conserve their local rice biodiversity using less water, seed, and land.
