The Golden Rice Project

Biofortified Golden Rice

Value added rice. Except for the colour—which we hope will become increasingly attractive to many people over time—the only difference between common rice and Golden Rice is that the latter produces and accumulates provitamin A (β-carotene) in the grain.

There is plenty of information spread over the Golden Rice web site. On this page you will find some compiled, downloadable, and relevant documents.
