NOW Red Yeast Rice delivers the natural nutrient profile found in Genuine Whole Foods. Red Yeast Rice is a natural product that has been used by Asian traditional herbalists since approximately 800 A.D. Produced by fermenting Red Yeast (Monascus purpureus) with white rice, Red Yeast Rice is commonly used in cooking applications to enhance the color and flavor of foods. Peking Duck is an example of the coloration and flavor imparted by Red Yeast Rice.
