MUNGIL RICE (BAMBOO RICE)

Description

Mungil rice or bamboo rice is a short-grain rice popular in asia.It is infused with bamboo extract, contributing the health benefits of chlorophyll and a rich green colour that’s retained when cooked.This infusion imparts the beautiful jade green colour and a slight jasmine green tea flavour.

The rice is also known as Mulayari/Mungil rice which is collected by the tribes residing in the forest from the seeds of flowers.It is not commonly available due to the reason that it takes many years for an aged plant to flower which is unpredictable as these may vary from few years to 100 years for a bamboo plant to flower.

Some species of bamboos only bloom with flowers once in 40-60 years and often die after flowering. They compensate this by releasing huge amounts of flowers and seeds, one of many mechanisms that nature employs to ensure the survival of certain species.
Bamboo rice, as with other types of rice, is rich in carbohydrates and relatively calorie-dense.
