What are enzymes?

Enzymes are types of proteins that we need to live. There is a limit to the amount of enzymes our bodies can naturally create. Thus we need to acquire them from food. Enzymes get damaged by heat that is over 38-40℃, so it is important to eat food raw. However, enzymes in brown rice can sustain high temperatures. They remain in the rice even after cooking. Moreover, these enzymes activate when rice is kept warm. This gives rice a stickier texture as days go by.

Can you eat it from day one?

Yes, you can. Fermentation hasn't started yet on the first day. It is cooked but you can still benefit from the nutrition of the brown rice. Eat it little by little and make it last for at least 3 days, otherwise you won't get the benefit of Fermented Brown Rice.

Do you have to use a rice cooker?

It doesn't matter what you use to cook the rice, but you must keep the rice warm constantly after cooking it. If you are using something other than a rice cooker, you need to move the cooked rice into a rice cooker, or you need to use a thermos pot to keep it warm. If you use a rice cooker from the beginning, you will save time by not having to transfer the cooked rice.

Do you have to use adzuki beans?

You can use other kinds of beans for Fermented Brown Rice. We recommend using adzuki beans because they prevent your body from swelling, and also act as a natural deodorant. Moreover, we think the flavor complements Fermented Brown Rice.
