So, what is roter reis?

Roter Reis, also known as red yeast rice, is a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine that has been used for centuries due to its unique flavor and medicinal properties. It is made by fermenting rice with a species of yeast called Monascus purpureus, which gives the rice its vibrant red color. Roter Reis is commonly used in dishes such as soups, stir-fries, and as a natural food coloring agent. In addition to its culinary uses, Roter Reis is believed to have various health benefits, including the ability to lower cholesterol levels and improve blood circulation. It is also a rich source of antioxidants, making it a popular ingredient in dietary supplements.
