Indigo Rain rice offers all of the same health benefits of brown rice but it also packs some serious antioxidants. Because of its dark colour, purple rice bran contains the same anthocyanin antioxidants found in blueberries or blackberries.
We ethically source all our boutique rice from growers who do not use synthetic pesticides and herbicides which threaten insect populations, contaminate water sources and can have ecosystem-wide knock-on effects. We accept that rice is a carbon-intensive carbohydrate but not nearly as high as that generated by animal farming, and therefore more sustainable in terms of ensuring the welfare of our environment. When we accept a submission from a rice grower we consider carefully how the rice growing affects the surrounding animal husbandry.
