Ingredients: Sticky black rice
Long grained, aromatic and shiny black in colour, The Good Food Company’s sticky black rice is a rare superfood. It is softly milled only, so that the outer bran layer remains intact, which makes it super rich in nutrients. It contains almost 4 times more protein, 3 times more iron and 50 times more calcium than milled white rice. To top off everything, it is one of the most veritable sources of anthocyanin, a plant-based anti-oxidant, which also imparts it the signature black colour. It has a pleasant nutty taste and will retain its rich, dark colour even after cooking.
This rare superfood can be added to wraps, soups, salads, used for making puddings and kheers, or it can be consumed in place of regular rice. The options are endless.
This rice is sourced from a community in West Bengal, who are trying very hard to revive this rare crop. It is grown on small family farms in a sustainable manner, using organic products of the farm itself, ensuring a superior quality produce and a small carbon footprint.
Treat yourself to one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. This black rice is a rare variety of heirloom rice that supports sustainable farming and makes it economically viable for rural communities to continue growing this fast disappearing variety.
The Good Food Company
The Good Food Company is a plant-based superfood brand and social enterprise. We scout for superfoods which are grown in a limited geography of the planet and bring them to the global gastronome population. We select products that boast of a superior nutritional profile to give you a wholesome experience of goodness, taste and energy. They are 100% natural, plant-based and chemical-free. They have been used by the communities from where they are sourced for generations and occupy a special place of importance in their culture. We work directly with our farmers and procure directly from them, so that they have control over the prices that they get. They are walking a difficult path by growing crops which are rare and hardly have any large scale commercial presence. They are doing a great service to their communities by preserving crops that have cultural importance for them. We recognise their good efforts and encourage them to carry on the good work, so that they keep on sowing these produces year after year, preserving not only a rare food item, but also a culture.
• Deal with Superfoods only, because they have an extra-large dose of proteins, fibre, anti-oxidants, essential minerals and vitamins.
• Procure only organically grown crops, because pesticides and fertilisers are hugely detrimental to our good health
• Source globally, because “good food” is scattered all over the planet
• Know exactly from whom we are procuring our raw materials, because we are super finicky about the quality of our products
• Work with the farmers directly, because we want them to gain superbly by partnering with us
• Strive to reduce our footprint on this planet, because we want to leave a strong legacy of environmental consciousness
So, in every pack of ours we promise to deliver good health, a taste of adventure and a slice of culture, right on your plate, so you get a chance to help the farmers who are growing this superb product.
