Forbidden Rice is great for raw fooders (who don't mind eating
grains occasionally). You don't have to cook it.
Just soak it overnight or all day before you need it. It becomes
soft, chewy, delicious and is a great accompanyment to raw curries. . .

Flavor Name: Organic Brown Mekong JasmineSize: 11 Pound Bag Verified Purchase
I make a lot of curry, and had an issue with the typical brown rice flavour totally dominating a dish. I have always been meaning to try Lotus Foods rice, and took the dive and bought (2) 11 lb bags of this Mekong Flower Rice when I saw it go on sale. Boy, I tell you what, the fragrance when those grains cook is very pleasant! The rice is organic, whole grain, and although having a unique and 'lighter' taste, it was well received by my partner and I and we will stick to buying high quality Lotus Foods rices! Truly a treat and Amazon offers some of the best prices I have seen! Not to mention this company is awesome for protecting heirloom varieties of rice, using SRI sytems for rice growing, and giving work to farmers all over with fair pay for their labor.

Flavor Name: Organic ForbiddenSize: 11 Pound Bag Verified Purchase
My family just loves this healthy Forbidden and organic rice. We now eat it 4-5 times weekly and it has become a real staple in our diets. The rice is NOT chewy like brown rice but is just as healthy. It also tastes great! I love it, my wife loves it, the kids even like it. In fact, my 20 month old eats it everyday and loves it! Highly recommended and rest assured the quality from Lotus Foods Organic has been excellent (after at least 5 separate orders of this 11lb bag as well as other packaging from Amazon).

Flavor Name: Organic Madagascar PinkSize: 11 Pound Bag Verified Purchase
Package arrived in the mail a few days ago in what appeared to be good condition. The bag was properly sealed and didn't appear to have any holes in it.

I decided to try this out today, but upon scooping some of the rice out, I noticed quite a few bugs. In fact, I've never seen any rice with so many bugs in it! I'm not sure how common this is in this variety of rice, but I can say that I've never had a problem with Lotus Foods' products in the past. Unfortunately, I have to give this product 1 star because of the extent of the contamination. I'd caution any buyers to stay away from this variety of rice given my experience and the fact that it can't be returned.

Flavor Name: Heirloom ForbiddenSize: 15 Ounce (Pack of 6) Verified Purchase
When considering the greater nutritional value of black rice, along with the great aroma and desired chewiness, this rice seems a good value. Please note it is not sold as organic, if you care about that.

I wanted to discover its basic flavor and confess I cooked it in a variable temperature crockpot with a pork roast. In this case, I rinsed the rice prior to adding it to the roast and liquid, and had salted the water lightly. I noticed even while rinsing it, that it possessed a great aroma, which continued to manifest during the cooking process. And: FLAVOR manifested during the eating process!

You may want to know that the coloring of black rice is so strong that it can and will stain white porcelain-type cooking vessels. Mine are Corning Cookmates and have been used for almost 40 years now (by my father before me) and have acquired a network of fine scratches, so it makes sense that a strong dye can enter. I will eventually bleach out the stain but couldn't get it with baking soda, which is my usual solution. So for this batch I used a slow-cooker with a black ceramic insert; that solved it.

The grains are smaller than I am used to with the Lundberg brand. Thus I had to use a finer-mesh strainer for washing, as too many fell through my regular strainer. No big problem; just thought I'd pass on the info. I also would mention another aspect so you won't be surprised: If a few grains are scattered about, they will look precisely like small mouse turds. This was initially unnerving to me because I've been unable to catch some particularly small rodents (they may be shrews or voles) that are leaving this type of calling card, because they are too light to trip the traps. But they can take the bait just fine. Time for a new kitty. Wuv kitties.

I love Lotus Foods rice! The first one I tried was the organic brown rice & that one was pretty nice for brown rice. Then I read about Forbidden Rice and how it's supposed to be especially good for you, so I looked it up on Amazon and came across this. What a pleasant surprise!! Not only is it much better for you than plain white rice, it has a really nice subtle flavor & the texture is great! I've even converted my only white rice eating husband over to having this whole grain version more often. Healthy, reasonable price, great taste, organic & sustainable farming practices- what more could you want in one package?? Will definitely be a repeat customer!

Flavor Name: Organic Brown JasmineSize: 25 Pound Bag Verified Purchase
If you are hoping for a cheaper, bulk version of Village Harvest Organic Brown Thai Jasmine Rice, 30-Ounce Bags (Pack of 6), this is not it. While better than ordinary brown rice, the fragrance and texture of Village Harvest is far superior and worth the additional cost.

Very sad update (August 20, 2012) (3 stars to 1 star)

We discovered the source of the dozens of little brown moths flying all over the house. Unfortunately, they came from this bag of rice, which we didn't realize until we had reached the bottom of the bag. I have had issues like this with brown rice purchased from Asian grocery stores before but not with brown rice from American groceries. Either way, it's not a good thing.
