Alter Eco Thai Sticky Purple Rice Gluten Free -- 16 oz

Subtly Sweet. Herloom Medley. Rice is so central to the diet in Thailand that the literal  translation of "I'm Hungry" is "I'm hungry for rice". this essential crop has been cultivated in the country's lush tropical terrain for centuries in nearly limitless varieties. From the famously fragrant polished grains of Hom Mali Jasmine to the bold beauty of Khao Deng Ruby and the sweet subtlety of Purple Sticky Rice we proudly preserve these delicious native heirloom grains for a new generation to enjoy.

It's purple rice; what's not to love?
 April 1, 2016
" Purple. Rice. LOVE IT! :)
In seriousness, it has a wonderful earthy flavor and texture, but be careful not to overcook it or you lose that texture. It's a little pricey for an all-the-time thing, but very enjoyable for a special treat! "

AWSOME FLAVOR
 February 11, 2016
" This was the first time I have ever heard of or tried purple sticky rice, this is a wonderful product. When ever I try a new item I always read the reviews, one review had me not expecting what I thought I was getting until I cooked it myself. This person said after it was cooked there was hardly any color & it looked almost like regular rice. All I can figure is this person looked in the bag and because it was mixed with jasmine did not think it would be purple but, when I cooked mine it could not be any darker. I feel people should try a product before giving a review. Try the toasting tip on the package it did make this taste even better. "

Not what I expect
 July 8, 2015
" Mom made me sticky rice since I was a kid, either white and purple. Having purple when special occasion and this is definitely not those purple sticky rice my mom made. Either taste and texture. I gave 2 stars as they can still be eaten.
Seems like, they mix original purple sticky rice with long grain ordinary white rice. When the purple hasn't cooked yet the white one almost turned into porridge. Unlike purple sticky rice mom made, having nutty savory flavour and firmed but well done rice texture. Not recommend for those who knows what purple sticky rice taste and feels like ,, "

Not all purple rice!
 December 28, 2014
" The label on this product and description gives the impression that we are pruchasing Purple Rice which is not the case. It is a blend of rice and the majority being white!
Once cooked, it is a good combination of taste otherwise but I wil not buy again for the very reason that label is misleading and the blend makes the product more expensive than buying Purple Rice bulk at the Co-Op Health Food Store near me. "

Wonderful Rice!
 August 27, 2014
" This rice is slightly sweet, fast cooking and possibly addictive!
If you like Jasmine rice you will probably like this too.
This is my family’s favorite!
