Chak hao Black Rice is a culturally important and stress tolerant traditional rice variety from Manipur, which provides not only nutraceutical benefits, but also plays a significant role in the socio-cultural practices of the local Meitei community.


Chakhao in the Manipuri language means "delicious rice" and along with its distinct taste and flavour, it has high nutraceutical properties such as antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, fibre, vitamin and mineral contents.


Historically, Black Rice was supposed to be a royal delicacy and forbidden for common people in Asian countries such as China & Indonesia. As legends have it, during the imperial period in China, common people were not allowed to cultivate/store black rice without the approval of the authorities and hence it was called forbidden rice.
