Red Yeast Rice has a long history in both culinary and medicinal uses. Originally, it is believed to have been first used or discovered in Asia. As a traditional food, it added flavor and color to dishes; as a medicine it improved digestion, helped alleviate diarrhea, and improved circulation. New research focused in the Western hemisphere suggests Red Yeast Rice not only improves circulation, it also helps lower LDL cholesterol and helps regulate triglyceride levels in the bloodstream.
The production of Red Yeast Rice begins with...rice. First, rice grains are saturated with water and then undergo a process called inoculation. Simply put, inoculation is the process of mixing the rice with a specific spore of mold, in this case Monascus purpureus. The processed rice and mold spores are then stored in a sterile environment, maintained at room temperature for three to six days. As time elapses, the rice grains dry and cultivate the spores, turning a brilliant bight red and purple color. The dried grains are then ground into a fine powder and ready for use.
