Rice is one of the oldest documented cultivated plants. Did you know there is proof it was cultivated more than 10000 years ago? They say, that at this time, the first rice was domesticated. It is just funny to think about wild rice being rebel!
Rice is not only a super plushie food. It has been used for many other things along history: making paper, ropes, cosmetics and many other things.
Did you know that rice was even used to build the Great Wall of China? Its sticky properties made it ideal to be mixed with mortar to make the base for the cement. And it sticks there for centuries!
