Wayanaden’s Organic Navara Rice is sourced from Black glumed Navara, which is priced high in Ayurveda for its medicinal qualities. Navara is used as a nutritional rice and health food.

Navara rice cultivated in the higher ranges like Wayanad has more medicinal properties than the one harvest from other parts of Kerala.

Organic Navara Rice has its origin in Kerala. Wayanaden’s Organic Njavara Rice is hand picked from the organic farmers of Wayanad, Kerala. It is an unpolished, medicinal rice and is believed to be loaded with health benefits and has an important place in Ayurveda.
