Luxurious organic black rice.
Posted by Leione on Apr 24, 2014
So delicious and nutritious. In addition to being gluten free and suitable for people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, this ancient Chinese rice is rich in protein, dietary fiber, niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid (vitamin B9), manganese, selenium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, iron, calcium, potas sium, phytosterols, antioxidants and flavonoids (including the very rare anthocyanins responsible for its dark color), and is beneficial for people suffering from diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease, gastritis, acid reflux, nausea, indigestion, osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatism and even cancer: it helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood spikes keeping you full longer, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, increases appetite, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, and even reduces the risk of cancer. I love this amazing rice: not only is it delicious and great in different recipes, but also it helps normalize my cholesterol levels and blood pressure and relieves the symptoms of my acid reflux and gastritis. Wonderful product. Highly recommended.

My order arrived quickly and in excellent condition. The rice tastes really good even plain. I ordered it because I discovered that black rice contains a lot of minerals and anthocyanins (more than blueberries!). I really enjoyed cooking a bowl for dinner.

This rice has both texture and flavor. Cooks up faster than brown with a much better flavor.

I purchased this after living in Korea for 2 years. They often used this rice mixed with white rice and I loved it. It gives your rice a lovely purple color(I mix mine Korean style...3/4 white rice 1/4 this rice). If you are looking to liven up your rice with healthy wholesome ingredients this is it!
Black rice is the way forward, plus it's really tasty

I seem to be judging all foods these days by how my blood sugar reacts. Black rice (unlike white and brown) is a rice that for me, at least, doesn't affect my glucose results that much. Which means I don't have to use as much insulin. Black rice is more nutty, has a better texture. I am really vegetarian for the most part, but had this once with salmon and raw spinach..it was incredible.
I would highly recommend this rice

This is an excellent rice! It is a short grain rice, it cooked up beautifully, it doesn't swell or fluff like white rice and the taste is fantastic. The taste is different than that of white rice. The flavour is stronger and distinctly nutty. It is gluten free, it is also HIGHLY nutritious with very high levels of antioxidants. I would highly recommend this rice. Enjoy and be healthy.

Its a bit pain to soak it in water because i dont make plans for the next day lunch but it helps to decrease cooking time very much, i only cook it for 10-20 mins, depeands on soaking. It has no taste but thats ok cause it goes whith every dish, you adjust it.
