Organic Black Rice is dark and nutty.
Organic Black Rice is also known as forbidden rice because in ancient China it was reserved for emperors to ensure they had a long life. It is higher in protein and dietary fibre than other rice varieties so is a popular choice.
Black rice actually has more antioxidants in the hull than almost any type of food, including blueberries. This makes it a good choice for those seeking a healthy lifestyle and the deep colour makes it popular with food enthusiasts. Our organic black rice is the Hom Nin Thai variety.
One 195g serving of cooked black rice is high in Manganese, Selenium and a source of Thiamin B1, Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine (B6) and Magnesium.
Black rice is fragrant and aromatic which makes it a great rice to try in summer recipes such as rice salads and tabbouleh style dishes. It also goes well with curries for added colour and texture. You can combine black rice with other rices or grains for further texture and flavour.
