What is Kaatuyanam Rice?

The rice variety is from TamilNadu and it is one of the traditional red rice variants. The name signifies two things – The crop grows so huge that an elephant can hide behind it and eating this rice gives your the strength of an elephant. Yaanam/Yaanai is an elephant in Tamil. The crop can grow in any climate and even in the driest conditions. It is blackish-red in colour. Naturally, this rice doesn’t need much maintenance during the growth period

Health Benefits:

It is rich calcium, magnesium and fibre, hence making it help in digestion and bone, teeth, hair growth.

It helps you fight against the knee, joint pains and helps in fighting arthritis.

The bran contains anthocyanins and is very rich in minerals and vitamins.
