Pachchaperumal 800g


The word ‘Pachchaperumal’ means The Lord ‘Buddha’s colour’ and has been considered divine rice in traditional Sinhalese culture. It was often used in alms giving’s. This is a wholesome red rice variety which when cooked takes on a deep rich burgundy colour. Rich in nutrients and in proteins, and is an excellent choice for your every day meal.

Pachchaperumal is known to be a perfect diet for those with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

**Pachchaperumal Rice has one of the lowest  glycemic index (GI), which averages less than 40 while the GI value of white rice is over 60!!!  while the daily Bread you eat has over a 70 GI value…this means Pachchaperumal makes the blood glucose levels to rise the slowest from all rice & wheat varieties.

**Pachchaperumal has an Amylose Content of 27.7 !! which is one highest for any rice variety. Amylose is a type of resistant starch, meaning it isn’t well-digested and absorbed in the small intestine. Instead, it’s fermented by bacteria in the large intestine thereby limiting spikes in blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol… this is why our forefathers and the Ayurveda community always recommended Pachchaperumal for Diabetics, now we have the science to prove they were right.

this is why it is  called a divine rice, it certainly is a blessing.


“Akshata Rice is grown deep in the North of Sri Lanka where the soil is alluvial, chemical free and fertile… grown and cared for by selected farmers rich in tradition and heritage coming from generations of legendary farming families.The Paddy is stored for over six months in order for it to mature, before carefully milling, resulting in a deeper and richer flavour and taste like a vintage champagne with more nutrition and a sweet floral Aroma due to its 2-Acetyl-1-pyrroline content.

Harvested just once a year, the supper-grains requires specific weather conditions to mature and flourish. It is much taller than other rices, and so is prone to wind damage, chemical fertilizer and pesticides are replaced by powdered neem seeds, dried makra leaves, crushed coconut shavings, sap from the jak fruit, cactus milk, branches of the kaduru tree, bamboo leaves and riverbed sand, are all employed when required and appropriate to deal with any infestations. The Colorful collection is a powerhouse of Nutrition’s which combines ancient wisdom with a healthy quick way to enjoy your favorite rice dishes.

Akshata rice verities have a pivotal role in this long tradition and has been recommended for not only prevention of illnesses but as a cure, the “CharakaSamhitha” (the oldest of the three surviving Ayurveda treatises) and the “SushrutaSamhitha” also mentions the therapeutic value of our Heirloom Rice verities.”
