There is a type of rice so delicious, it’s said, that a wife will eat it all and leave nothing for her husband when he returns home. It’s known as “Forget Husband” rice, or “Leum Pua” rice. Black-Luempua rice is a unique rice variety indigenous to Petchabun area in Thailand and was granted Geographical Indication (GI) mark in 2013 by Department of Intellectual Property. Germinated Black-Leumpua rice contains higher levels of certain nutrients and other beneficial substances than purple brown rice. These include Omega-3, Omega-6, Omega-9, Vitamin B1 and B2, Vitamin E, zinc, protein, gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), and anthocyanin antioxidants, like those found in blueberries and blackberries. Steamed Black-Leumpua rice has both crispy and tender qualities, which makes it quite tasty. The rice comes with fruity aroma, a roasted nutty flavor, and exotic sweet spiciness.
