Red Rice - Kattuyanam

Rs. 425.00

Kattuyanam rice is a native variety of rice grown in Tamil Nadu. Also known as Red Rice, this is one of the traditional Red Rice varieties of South India.  This paddy variety is well suited to organic farming because it is hardy and demands little to no fertilizers or pesticides. Kattu means forest and Yana means Elephant in Tamil. This variety of paddy grows so tall that it can hide a wild elephant and so why the name came about. It takes about 125 to 135 days for this crop to yield. This rice is usually unhulled or partially hulled and the husk is red in color. The color is due to the presence of anthocyanins like apigenin, myricetin and quercetin and bran. Anthocyanins possess antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-obesity effects, as well as prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
