Jeollanam-do's Best Rice Grower
[Kang Dae In] Organic 5-Type Mixed Rice
Kang Dae In is one of the most famous organic rice growers in Korea.
Since 1977, Kang Dae In has been cultivating rice the 'old' way - with no herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Instead, he uses natural compost from rice husks, fruits, vegetables, garlic and other herbs to create a nutrient-packed fertilizer for his soil. Kang has been on a personal mission to create a sustainable way of organic rice farming. And over the last 30 years, his rice has become regarded as one of the best rice from the Jeollanam-do province.
Today, we present you with Kang Dae In's Organic 5-Type Mixed Rice. This mixture is made with 5 different types of rice: Black Rice, Green Rice, Red Rice, Glutinous Brown Rice and Glutinous White Rice. Each of these rice has better nutrition than plain white rice. For example, the black rice is rich in anthocyanin - a natural antioxidant. While the red rice has properties that help to reduce cholesterol level and skin troubles. And the green rice contains lysine - which helps to reduce blood sugar.
Koreans like to mix-in a handful of this mixed rice when cooking white rice. It adds nutrition, chewing texture and flavor while also making the rice look beautiful. A win-win!
If you eat rice regularly, consider adding-in some mixed rice!

About the Brand

On the left is a panoramic shot of our organic rice farm. On the right, you'll see a close-up of the rice stalks. Look closely and you'll see a red object. Those are newly-laid eggs of river snails. It's a good sign that the farm and water conditions are healthy. Instead of using chemical pesticides, we rely on river snails to eliminate the weeds in our rice patch. To keep these snails alive, we adjust the water level multiples times throughout the day. It's a cumbersome process - but an essential step for organic rice farming.
Look at the stalks and leaves. They have a deep purple color and they have sprouted into a 3-prong spear shape. This tell me that the rice stalks are getting good nutrition. Of course, it starts with nutrient-rich soil. At our farm, we create natural compost from leftover rice husks, fruits, vegetables and leftover pieces of root herbs - and absolutely no chemical fertilizers!
This is another section of our farm. Take a look at the Onggi Pots. We use them to ferment products like Maesil and Rice Vinegar. These large, earthen pots help the organic ingredients dry out in the open sun and in the natural wind without any external contaminants or bugs. Afterwards, the pots are brought indoors to continue fermenting at a controlled temperature and humidity.
Finally, here is where we package the rice. We prefer packaging small batches over bulk-packaging a whole yield at once. Each bag is sealed by hand and thoroughly inspected before final shipment. Doing it by hand reduces our efficiency but it ensures that our customers are getting the best!
A: We recommend mixing in a handful of the mixed rice when you cook regular white rice. It adds more nutrition and texture to white rice.
A: There is no set rule - but we recommend a ratio of 25% (1/4 cup of mixed rice for every 3/4 cup of white rice)
The company recommends storing it in the refrigerator.
