Looks like E to me.

A - pronoun problem ( ambiguous reference of 'it')
B - awkward
C - same as A
D - ignores word "though"

I take back my answer E has misplaced modifier.

A - ambigous reference of "it"(brown rice or genmai-cha)
considered as a delicacy fir fot gourmet (awkward)

B - Considered to be is incorrect
C - Reference of "it" is ambiguous
D - word "though" is missing
E - misplaced modifier

Between C and D, I will choose D

relative clause in choice B sounds good to me.

also the idiom 'considered to be', sounds cool
