Organic Italian Black Rice

From: £5.98

(£5.98 inc. VAT)



Our Organic Italian Black Rice is dark and nutty.

Organic Italian Black Rice is higher in protein and dietary fibre than other rice varieties so is a popular choice. This is a medium whole grain rice and deep black in colour.

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.

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.

If you interested in other speciality rices try our organic brown jasmine rice, organic wild rice, organic white basmati rice, organic brown basmati rice and organic red rice.
