black rice

I didn’t know that there is such thing as black rice. I have seen brown rice but never the black. And i have learned that the black rice is a super food. It contains health-promoting anthocyanin antioxidants  similar to those found in blackberries and blueberries.

A research from Louisiana State University indicates:

Just a spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants than are found in a spoonful of blueberries, but with less sugar and more fiber and vitamin E antioxidants,” Zhimin Xu, PhD, of Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, says in a news release. “If berries are used to boost health, why not black rice and black rice bran?

Eating black rice is an  inexpensive way to increase people’s intake of anthocyanin antioxidants, substances that show promise for fighting cancer, heart disease, and other health problems.

Black rice bran or bran extracts could be used to boost the health value of foods, such as snacks, cakes, breakfast cereals, beverages, cookies, and other foods.
