Bamboo extract is a rich source of chlorophyll and an up-and-coming superfood.

Better For People
Lotis Foods' rice is grown on family farms in northeast China. Organic methods help preserve the region's fertile soils. The bamboo extract is infused into the rice in artisanal batches, guaranteeing better control and superior quality.
Better For the Planet
Lotus Foods is ramping up their commitment to support farmers who are adopting practices that go beyond organic. Using the System of Rice Intensification or SRI, they can improve their yields and incomes with less water, seed and agrochemicals. Look for the More Crop Per Drop icon on the front of the retail bags that has been grown using water-saving SRI practices.
