About : Red rice

Red rice is a tasty whole grain which is grown in Camargue, a region on the edge of Provence. It is well known for its healthy and dietary properties and is recognizable to the eye by its unique red coloring and by taste with delicious nutty flavor.

 

A French Delight

Most varieties of rice are brown but as well as being pretty, red rice is very high in nutritional value. This is because the germ, an incredibly nutritious element of each grain, remains intact when the rice is harvested. Its red coloring is a result of natural pigments contained within it.

Camargue red rice is native to Provence and is quite a new variety of the plant. However it has been incorporated as an ingredient in a number of delicious sides and salads that reveal the flavors of Provence.

 

Nutrition Inside & Out

Red rice is not just a nice-looking grain packed full of nutrients. It is also the perfect ingredient in some skincare ranges. Red rice has also proven to be helpful in treating oily and combination skin.
