rice, fermented South American; whole rice is moistened and left to ferment for 10–15 days, then dried and milled. Bacterial and fungal fermentation reduces the time required for cooking—there is some loss of protein, but synthesis of vitamin B2. Also known as arroz fermentado, arroz amarillo, or sierra rice.
