Locally grown and cultivated in the highlands of the Philippines and internationally known as Job’s Tears, Adlai is an heirloom local grain that is native to Southeast Asia and the Philippines. It is a high altitude crop that is grown where rice and corn do not grow well. It has a cereal like consistency and is very nutritious. It is greater in protein and good fat than rice and is more similar to Quinoa. It is slightly nutty, slightly sweet, and creamy in texture.
