More information about Red Yeast Rice Organic
Red yeast rice (also called red yeast rice) is an important part of Asian cuisine. It has been consumed in large quantities for centuries. Red yeast rice is produced by fermenting rice with the yeast Monascus purpureus, which gives the rice a dark red color. The characteristic ingredients are created during the fermentation process. The most important of these is monacolin K. A daily intake of 10 mg of monacolin K from red yeast rice contributes to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels in the blood.
