Red Yeast Rice (Chinese: 紅麴米, 红曲米; pinyin: hóng qú mǐ; lit. "red yeast rice"), red fermented rice, red kojic rice, red koji rice, or ang-kak, is a bright reddish purple fermented rice, acquires its colour from being cultivated with the mold Monascus purpureus.

The results demonstrated this product is truly made from fermentation process. Another characteristic feature of this product is that there is no citrinin. Ergosterol，unsaturated fatty acid, amino acids, γ-GABA and active peptides are also found in this product, enduing this products more functional gradients and nutrients.
