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.
