Paddy-to-Plate: Yabbiekayu’s Red Rice, Delicious and Nutritious! 

Red rice is a nutritious whole grain that has been growing in popularity in recent years due to its health benefits. Unlike its white counterpart, red rice is high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins, making it a healthy alternative to refined carbohydrates. At Yabbiekayu, we serve red rice with all of our traditional Indonesian dishes, which are not only delicious but also packed with protein and fiber.

But where does this delicious and healthy rice come from? Meet Ibu Narsih, one of our most senior employees who has been organically growing red rice together with her husband, Pak Sehiman. They are part of a local community of rice farmers who have been cultivating this nutritious crop for generations. Rice farming is not an easy task, and it requires a lot of effort and dedication.

“From planting seedlings to the threshing process, Ibu Narsih has mastered all the steps of the cycle.”

At Yabbiekayu, we are proud to support local farmers like Ibu Narsih and Pak Sehiman, who grow organic and healthy red rice. By doing so, we empower local communities and promote sustainable agriculture practices.

Besides being delicious, red rice has many health benefits that make it a better alternative to white rice. For starters, it is rich in fiber, which can help improve digestion, lower cholesterol levels, and prevent heart disease. It is also a good source of minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc, which are essential for healthy bones and immune function. Red rice is also a low glycemic index food, which means that it doesn’t cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. This is especially important for people with diabetes, who need to keep their blood sugar levels in check.

Red rice is a nutritious and delicious alternative to white rice, and at Yabbiekayu, we are proud to serve it with all our traditional Indonesian dishes. By supporting local farmers, we promote sustainable agriculture practices and empower local communities. So, why not join the red rice camp now and enjoy its health benefits? And if you come to Yabbiekayu, don’t hesitate to ask Ibu Narsih about her farming experiences and her delicious red rice.
