Named and famed for its fragrant aroma, suwandel is a heirloom rice indigenous to Sri Lanka. It is considered auspicious by the islanders and is prepared as offerings to the gods during festivals and religious ceremonies. Within its rich, milky flavor, the rice is also fortified with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and a much lower Glycaemic Index (GI) compared to other varieties of white rice. Just as this rare rice was used by aristocratic women of yore to foster glowing skin and luscious hair, you too can reap its benefits with organic suwandel rice!
