Nutritional Information:

We check out the internet and here’s what we found:

According to the American Chemical Society, “black rice is a nutritious and economical food source that is estimated to feed about one third of the world’s population.” Also known as forbidden rice, black rice has a sticky texture and a nutty flavor. Grown in the Philippines and Indonesia, it is consumed mostly in Asia for noodles, sushi, pudding and adding decoration to food.

Nutrients in Rice

It is well-known that brown rice is a healthier alternative to white. The difference between the two is that white rice is devoid of bran, which is full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Like brown rice, black rice has similar nutrient levels and higher amounts of antioxidants. It is also a source of fiber and minerals, including iron. A 100g serving of black rice has 8.5g of protein, 3.5mg of iron and 4.9g of fiber. Compared to white, brown and red rices, black rice has the highest amount of protein and double the fiber of brown rice.
