A medium fine rice, the Kabiraj Sal is a medicinal rice, known for its therapeutic use. Rich in iron, zinc & vitamin B, this rice was traditionally given to patients recovering from prolonged illness, as a nourishing food which is easy to digest. “Traditional rice varieties are inherently endowed with at least 30 percent to 70 percent higher nutritional value than their chemically grown counterparts, “ explains Sudeb Saha, a medical practitioner from Raiganj in Uttar Dinajpur and  vice-president of Forum for Indigenous Agricultural Movement, in an interview to the online publication Your Story.  Like Spirit of the Earth, FIAM is made up of school teachers, professors and doctors mostly in their 30s and 40s trying to revive heritage rice that we have lost.
