Wehani® is an aromatic rice sold whole-grain, with the bran on it left on.

Before cooking, it is terra-cotta coloured.

When cooked, the rice turns a mahogany colour and is slightly chewy. Some think the cooked rice has an aroma similar to hot peanuts or popcorn.

The rice splits slightly when cooked.

It has been sold since at least 1991, and probably was on the market before that.
