Red yeast rice, also known as red kojic rice and red fermented rice, has been used in traditional Chinese medicine since 800 AD as a tonic, blood revitalizer, and digestive aid. Current research suggests it may be beneficial to the heart and the entire circulatory system.
Red Yeast Rice is a unique natural product native to China that’s been used in Asian traditional medical systems since approximately 800 A.D. Produced by fermenting red yeast (Monascus purpureus) with white rice, Red Yeast Rice is commonly used in cooking applications to enhance the color and flavor of foods. Peking Duck is an example of the coloration and flavor imparted by Red Yeast Rice.
