Chinese red rice wine, popular among the Fujian Chinese (Malaysia, China). The
red color is derived from iron in the red yeast rice, the traditional yeast
culture made from wild yeast in the city of Fuzhou, where this style of rice
wine originated, and the ancestral origin of many overseas Chinese in the
Pacific islands. Red rice wine got stuck with
a bad rap after the New York Time warned against “moonshiners” and
the “outbreak of bootlegging” in Flushing, Sunset Park, and Chinatown. In the
article, a saleswoman at a kiosk was reported to have been “flustered” when
asked about the homemade concoction: “It’s for cooking, for sautéeing! It’s
only for the Fujianese!” Her protestations appeared to cover up a scandalous
slice of enclave life. The real story? While the sale of homemade liquor
is illegal in New York, there is nothing unwholesome about the red-pink
as Foochow ang chow, the sweet wine is a common condiment in
Chinese homes (think: the bottle of dry sherry sitting in your kitchen
cabinet). Though jugs of wine can be found on restaurant shelves and
street vendor stands in Chinatowns across the city, it isn’t always sold to

brewer, “you’ll get drunk,” but others disagree.

writer and cook that blogs at Going With My Gut. “It doesn’t serve the
same purpose as Prohibition-era moonshine. Most of the time we cook with it. In
recent years, my mum’s really refined her technique, such that the wine she
gets is very fragrant, mellow, and sweet—like a dessert wine. If it’s a
particularly good vintage, we sip small quantities after a meal. Certainly not
to get wasted!”

results are not often published in international journals, which can make
accurate knowledge about rice wine and its effects on the body less accessible.
However, there are also many documented health benefits of drinking rice wine.
Nutritional analysis of Korean makgeolli has shown that despite the alcohol
rice wine is a highly nutritious beverage that contains an abundance of
essential amino acids, sugars and org1anic acids, as well as vitamins and minerals
(Yang & Eun, 2011). Since rice wine is a fermented product, it is not
surprising that the drink also contains many strains of lactic acid bacteria
(LAB), which are often considered probiotic. A multidisciplinary group of
researchers from Korea investigated 17 LABs that can be found in traditional
Korean wine and assessed their probiotic potential. To be considered a ‘good’
probiotic, an organism needs to tolerate low stomach pH and bile acids, as well
as be able to adhere to the intestines. Researchers identified one particular
strain of LAB in rice wine that showed to be more resistant than others (Park
et al., 2015). Their findings could potentially help the food industry produce
higher quality beverages with true probiotic valu
