Grains of Wellness Red Rice Chips

Taste: These cracker-like chips were each just about an inch square and fairly thick, with subtle ripples parallel to two of the edges; they looked much like the chip pictured on the front of the box. The raw material for these may have been red rice, but there was nothing that seemed all that red about the resulting chips, which were gray with a hint of purple. The chips were fairly flat, but there was a slight curvature or bend to most pieces. We crunched in to find a light crunch and good crispness, with a very subtle taste. There was just the slightest amount of salt, but it was enough to help bring some really good flavor out of the rice. The chips were solid enough that they could be used for dipping, but the fairly small size could make that a challenge. Unlike some dippable chips that tend toward the bland side, these tasted quite nice on their own as a satisfying snack.

"Did you know what makes red rice, red? It's natural phytonutrients called anthocyanins — the same pigments that give blueberries their blue color! And that's what gives our wholegrain red rice chips there their distinctive color. By using this delicious red rice, we created a wholesome gluten-free rice chip, with no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no artificial anything!" ... "Product of Thailand" .... "Ingredients: Wholegrain Red Rice, Expeller-pressed Palm Oil, Salt"
