Info: 426 g (15 oz) Resealable Bag

This ancient type of very short-grained (about 1/2 cm long uncooked) black rice from China was once reserved exclusively for the Emperor of China, since it was thought to be so good for you it could extend your lifespan. Turns out they weren't so far wrong -- not only is this heart healthy organic whole grain rice an excellent source of complex carbohydrates and protein, but it also contains anthocyanins, which are flavonoid antioxidants. In fact, this has even more antioxidants per spoonful than fresh blueberries! It has a somewhat nutty flavour, and becomes a deep violet colour when cooked. Mix things up a little by trying something new, whether as a main side dish of its own, or as an intriguing new element to salads, soups, or even desserts!

Suggested Usage:

Cooks in 25 minutes, using the traditional 2:1 ratio (e.g. bring 2 cups of liquid to a boil, and add 1 cup of rice, and simmer, covered, for 25 minutes).

Warnings:

Allergy alert: may contain traces of tree nuts, from the production facility.
