Rai Din Thai Sprouted Black Rice Powder

Reviving Humanity’s Relationship with Nature’s Most Complete Food

Rai Din Thai manufacturers sprouted black rice powder grown high in the hills in Northern Thailand.
It evolved out of the Black Rice Project founded by Michael Thelen, with the goal of providing Nature’s Most Complete Food to the world, in its culturally correct form.
Our desire to provide the full value of this ancient treasure, required that we honour traditional methods of growing, consumption along with modern scientific preservation techniques.
The result is an easy to consume powder with all the nutritional complexity that Nature intended.

Hippocrates – the Father of Medicine is attributed to have said Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” over 2,400 years ago.


Yet today, modern science is only just beginning to discover the many medicinal and health benefits contained in sprouted black rice. For centuries, Asian cultures have understood that black rice was the key to good health and longevity. In fact the rulers of early  Chinese dynasties referred to it as Forbidden Rice or the Emperor’s Rice, as it was strictly reserved for the Emperor, to ensure a long and healthy life.

After trying black rice in the mountains of Thailand, our late founder, Michael Thelen, dreamt of creating an all natural, sprouted Superfood. In 2017, he founded Rai Din Thai (meaning Fertile Thai Soil), and today it is the premium manufacturer of organic, Sprouted Black Rice Powder.

Mike researched the incredible health benefits that organic, sprouted black rice provides, and relentlessly pioneered the product’s development. Mike was convinced that Sprouted Black Rice Powder was the ultimate health food of the future, that offered Nature’s Most Complete Food, to the world in its culturally correct form, just as nature intended.

There is now a lot of emerging scientific research evidence to support its efficacy in the treatment of inflammation, high blood pressure, weight management, T2 diabetes and certain types of cancer you can read about here.

The correct geography is a key component in creating the distinction between the far superior nutrition of black rice and the basic properties of white rice.

Rai Din Thai’s organic, sprouted black rice powder has nearly 4 times the level of protein of white rice. It’s organically grown, at over 500 m, in a valley between 2 mountain ranges, near Wiang Pa Pao.

The cooler night-time temperatures, and fertile soil found at higher elevations in the mountainous areas of Northern Thailand, produces a nutritionally dense Sprouted Black Rice Powder with unique health and anti-inflammatory  properties.


“Our vision will be complete when our efforts are able to address worldwide famine relief with this super functional food.”
