Rice, bamboo extract.
Bamboo Rice is short-grain rice that is colored and flavored by the juice, or "tea," of fresh bamboo. The juice is added after the milling process, which removes the hull and bran of the rice, allowing the juice to permeate the remaining grain.
Bamboo Rice recreates the ancient Chinese tradition of cooking rice in bamboo, thus uniting two of the most noble and valued plants in all of Asia and imparting a regal jade color. Bamboo is seen as a symbol of fortune and long life, while rice is life-giving sustenance.
Our Bamboo Rice offers striking and exotic pale green color and delicate herbal taste and aroma. Before cooking, Bamboo Rice features a striking, deep jade green. After cooking, the color remains, but changes from opaque to semi-translucent, while the subtle herbal character shines through. Bamboo Rice has a moist and sticky texture, so other ingredients like vegetables adhere well to it, making it a unique option for risotto-style dishes, sushi and other applications in which a sticky rice is desired.
In addition to providing a gorgeous color and subtle flavor, the addition of bamboo juice returns some of the nutrients that are lost in the white rice milling process. Bamboo Rice is especially high in vitamin B and antioxidants.
Short-grained and starchy with a beautiful pale green color, our Bamboo Rice is an irresistible option for rice pudding. This version, which uses coconut milk, is modeled on the Thai dessert staple, sticky rice with mango.
