Botanical Name: oryza sativa
USDA Certified Organic
Ingredients: organic steamed black rice

Qualities: Black rice is full of antioxidant-rich bran, which is found in the outer layer of the kernel but only black-rice bran contains the antioxidants known as anthocyanins, purple pigments which are higher by weight than that of other colored grains and have been linked to a decreased risk of heart disease and cancer, improvements in memory, and other health benefits. It is completely normal to have a darkish water when you wash the grains with clear water.
Common use: Black rice's deep black color turns deep purple when cooked and has a mild, nutty taste. Often mix it with other grains such as white rice, buckwheat, and millet to create delicious bowl of mixed grains.
