Description

What is red yeast rice?

Red yeast rice (also called red rice koji, anka or ang-kak) is a bright reddish-purple fermented rice, which gets its color by being fermented with the fungus Monascus purpureus.

What is the difference between red rice yeast and koji?

Although red yeast rice is called a “koji” in Japanese, it is not the koji we know of miso or soy sauce. (Koji actually means no more than “grain or bean overgrown with a mold culture”).

How to use red rice koji

Red yeast rice is used to color a wide range of food products, including pickled tofu, red rice vinegar, char siu, Peking duck, ginger slices for your sushi, Chinese dry sausage and Chinese cakes. It is also traditionally used in the production of various types of Chinese rice wines (Shaoxing jiu) and Japanese sake (akaisake). Although red yeast rice is mainly used for its color, it gives a subtle but pleasant taste to food. You do not eat it like you eat white rice, it wold be too bitter.

Red rice yeast produces statins and there is evidence of it’s medical benefits, but Startercultures.eu refrains from any medical advice.

The yeast is not meant to leaven bread.
