More about Organico Wild Red Rice (Wholegrain)

This is a cultivated rice seeded from a wild strain of rice. Typically wild red rice grows well on clay soils and is characterised by a tender, aromatic flavour which keeps longer after cooking. Red rice is rich in mineral salts, particularly selenium, antioxidants, iron and proteins and is easily digested - giving it a 'superfood' or 'supergrain' reputation.

The Organico speciality rice range is grown and packed in Bianze in the heart of the century-old rice fields of the Northern Po valley. Their partners, the Picco family have been cultivating rice there since 1878. they are dedicated to the environmental stewardship of the land and to preserving the culture and cultivation of rice.
Together with other local families they have formed a co-operative to both pack and develop find quality Italian rice. they grow a wide range of typical and newer varieties on their land. The rice is husked through a stone milling process that is more careful or gentle and therefore helps preserve the nutritional and taste qualities of the grain.

Received as a gift from goodness, and forgotten for a while, but thankfully found and much enjoyed. Really does need the 40 minutes cooking time but has a lovely 'nutty' texture, we enjoyed it mixed with Quorn mince and a spicy tomato sauce, look forward to trying with other vegetarian dishes.

This is a true rice so not to be confused with the black seeds known as 'wild rice'. Nice and clean with a pleasant mild flavour that should go well with most dishes. It absorbs twice its volume of water, just like white rice, and is done to perfection when simmered for 40 minutes. There was hardly any scum around the pan after cooking and no noticeable colour run. I will be using it to add some interest to salads and pilaff type dishes.
