Long reserved for royalty, black rice, also known as “emperor’s rice” or “forbidden rice,” was once deemed too nutritious for commoners to consume. This whole-grain rice, with its deep purple hue and nutty, slightly sweet flavor, is rich in anthocyanins – antioxidant pigments that boost its health benefits. The Chinese even consider it a “blood tonic.” But you don’t have to be royalty to reap its rewards.
But black rice isn’t the only superstar on our plate. Introducing red rice, a powerhouse in its own right, packed with flavonoid antioxidants such as apigenin, myricetin, and quercetin. Studies have shown that red rice has higher concentrations of flavonoids compared to brown rice and a higher potential to fight free radicals.
