SOS Organics Himalayan Village Brown Rice is grown in the high valleys of the Kumaon Himalaya. This rice is an old variety that grows best under extreme weather conditions in rain fed areas.
Brown Rice Vs Polished Rice
In Asia, rice has been and still is, a main source of nutrition. Rice has been cultivated in India and China since ancient times. Rice is rich in Vitamin B1, which is contained in the outer husk and coating of the rice kernel. But with time when technology for polishing rice became available, people took to eating highly polished white rice stripped of its germ layer which made it look good but which was definitely not better for one’s health.
Brown rice is old fashioned rice which is de-husked but still has its inner layer intact. All the iron, protein and B vitamins are present in this layer. Brown unpolished rice has more nutritional value than white rice and is very helpful for diabetes patients.
Un-adulterated foods have formed the basis of our human diet through the ages. Chemical farming inputs and “factory farming” became popular in the middle of the last century as a way to maximize crop yields. Today, our world pays a large price for these practices, which have resulted in environmental and economic imbalances. What happens to the health of the animals, plants, micro-organisms, soil, oceans, and atmosphere, also affects human beings. There is no one who is immune to the effects of an unhealthy environment, no matter how much technology or wealth they may possess.
In producing the Himalayan Village Rice, we use a low-energy rubber de-sheller, specially developed for us to produce brown rice without exerting high pressure, speed or temperature. The de-sheller is solely operated by young village ladies.
