Organic Madagascar Pink Rice™

Organic Madagascar Pink Rice is elusively aromatic of cinnamon and cloves. This soft, supple and nutritionally dense rice is milled to retain 66% of its wholesome bran layer, which allows it to cook in only 20 minutes! It is produced by members of the Koloharena Cooperative and adjacent farms using SRI farming practices (or what we call More Crop Per Drop™). This enables smallholder farmers to harvest more rice using less water and pesticides while reducing methane off-gassing and physical labor for women.

Madagascar Pink Rice is produced near Madagascar’s large inland lake, Lake Alaotra. The reeds along the shores of the lake are home to the tiny, critically endangered Alaotran Gentle Lemur. It is hoped that SRI farming practices will help reduce degradation of the lemur's dwindling habitat by making existing land more productive without the need for polluting chemicals. Visit our MCPD page to learn more about this amazing system that is changing how rice is being grown around the world.

Cooking Instructions:
Combine 1 ¾ cups of water, 1 cup rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand covered for a few minutes. Fluff and serve. A rice cooker may be used with the same water-to-rice ratio.
