Organic Red Rice from Thailand is an excellent source of manganese, a good source of zinc, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus and selenium. It includes considerable amounts of protein and several B-vitamins as well.
The flavour is generally more sweet, nutty and chewy. Both red and black rice also contain good amounts of anthocyanins. Use the ratio of 1.5 cups of of water to 1 cup of rice. Each cup of dry red rice yields 2 cups of cooked rice. When cooked it may dye the rest of your dish red to pink.
