But for the keen attention of one farmer, Jean Baptiste Rakotomandimby known as Dista, this unique Malagasy rice variety may have been lost forever. Grown from a single seed, Madagascar Pink Rice amazed people with its abundant growth and satisfying, subtly sweet flavor. Elusively aromatic of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, this soft supple rice is also nutritionally dense, milled to retain most of the wholesome bran layer. In the Lake Alaotra region, where this rice is produced, locals claim that eating this rice has improved their health. Madagascar Pink Rice will transform any rice dish into a special meal. Use it steamed plain, in a pilaf, stir fry, salad or pudding. Madagascar Pink Rice is grown by households of theKoloharena Cooperative of Amparafaravola using a more sustainable set of practices called the System of Rice Intensification SRI. SRI enables small family farmers to harvest more rice using less water, seed, land and no chemicals. Lake Alaotra's marshy shores are home to the critically endangered Alaotran Gentle Lemur. It is hoped that SRI will help reduce degradation of the lemur's dwindling habitat by making existing land more productive without the need for polluting chemicals. Visit our MCPD section to learn more about this amazing system that is changing the rice growing world.
