In a time like this when the price of white rice has gone up due to some government policies, more people are going back to the country's indigenous rice, popularly known as ofada rice. Unlike white rice which is imported into the country, ofada rice is grown here. Ofada rice is brown rice.
The growing demand for ofada rice is indeed growing and this still opens up a channel of investment and profit for investors considering the number of people both home and abroad that consume it. This is no doubt a good source of income and a profitable business.
Ofada rice is very healthy, in fact, much healthier than white rice. And unlike white rice, it is unpolished, has no genetic modification and is cultivated without chemicals so it retains most of its natural vitamins and minerals. It has about twice the fiber content of regular white rice. Fiber plays a significant role in our digestion process. Ofada rice is also known for swelling in size when cooked.
Apart from its nutritional benefits, ofada rice is known to be regarded as a sign of status prestige by some people and it is typically tastier compared to white rice. The ofada rice meal is served in a unique way that distinguishes it from other rice served at parties such as jollof rice, white rice and stew, or fried rice.
The benefits of ofada rice include, prevention and regulation of diabetes, cancer prevention because of the presence of trace Selenium, weight control, colon cleansing, prevention of Candidia overgrowth, lowering the blood pressure, migraine treatment, calorie intake regulation etc., the taste and pleasurable experience of an Ofada rice meal makes it desired by its consumers.
The market for ofada rice is large, highly promising and rewarding. Regardless of the rate of its supply, it yet can't meet up with its demand, especially exporting it to Europe. Ofada rice is not grown in European countries so it is scarce over there and highly priced when exported there as its availability is solely dependent on its import.
There are many channels of the business you can be involved in the rice processing or you may buy and package it for sale, whichever way, you will definitely record a good return on investment.
