Rich in mineral salts

The land in the areas of Ferrara and Rovigo where Po Delta Rice PGI is grown has high mineral fertility, mostly potassium, to the extent that potassium mineral fertiliser inputs are sometimes superfluous, as well as those nitrogenous in peaty soils. In addition to potassium, rice has an abundance of macroelements such as magnesium, calcium and sodium

Po Delta Rice PGI is therefore a natural product rich in mineral salts useful to our body. The specific organoleptic characteristics and the territory in which it is grown distinguish it from any other variety of rice produced in Italy and in the world, making it a unique product.

Rich in vitamins

The special nutritional and health characteristics of Po Delta Rice PGI, scientifically proven, guarantee its authenticity and excellent quality.

The land where the rice is grown promotes greater resistance to cooking and a high protein content of the grain. In addition, the proteins are higher than those of other cereals both in composition and assimilation. Po Delta Rice PGI is rich in micronutrients essential for our metabolism and health such as the vitamins of group B (B1, B2 and B3 or PP), essential for a proper diet and useful for strengthening the immune system, as well as phosphorus: a mineral that promotes the activation and use of vitamins.
