Sri Lankan Red Rice

Has anyone tried this variety? (there are many different types described as "red rice" but I have only eaten one of the Sri Lankan varieties) It has a distinct odor, firm texture, takes about as long to cook as brown basmati rice and seems to differ from that only in that the husk is removed. here's a link:

sri-lanka, especially the generations reared on red rice, didn't really have the problems that paleo ideologues find inevitable with consumption of unpolished rice. In 1986, heart attacks were not the problem they are today (with the concomitant, arguably consequent, change from red rice to white rice): 1986: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=Medium%20chain%20triglycerides%20(MCT)%20in%20aging%20and%20arteriosclerosis to now: http://www.coconutdiet.com/blog/post.cfm/new-extensive-research-from-sri-lanka-shows-coconut-oil-has-no-risk-to-cvd-and-that-coconut-residue-has-great-promise-for

Never tried it, but it is still unpolished rice, so the bran stays there which means it has a lot of phytic acid. I wouldn't advice eating it on a regular basis unless you're eager to remove this acid by soaking and/or fermenting, but that's a lot of hard work.
