You never go back to white rice 🙂
Now you are probably wondering what the benefits of eating Black Chinese Forbidden Rice are which is what brings us to this lovely Thursday post.
The deep purple hued rice adopted the name forbidden from ancient China when the emperor considered this the finest grain and therefore forbid anyone else from eating it.
This gluten-friendly grain has many health benefits including being high in fiber and iron. It contains many phytonutrients which provide antioxidants and many minerals important to human health such as anthocyanins that rid the body of toxins.
Forbidden rice not only adds flavor but also vibrant color to any meal! Beyond Sushi uses Black forbidden rice in addition to six grain rice offering up delicious texture and colors that are easy on the eyes.
