Black Rice –though often overlooked– is a true "super grain" loaded with vitamins, minerals and natural anthocyanin (antioxidants)— just like those found in blueberries, blackberries, dark cherries and acai.
In ancient times, Black Rice was reserved exclusively for Chinese Emperors. No others were allowed to consume it. There’s a reason the Chinese Emperors wanted to keep black rice to themselves (besides the fact that’s its purple, which is commonly associated with royalty and piety) —many don’t know this, but black rice rivals and often exceeds some of the most notable antioxidant rich foods. Plus it’s loaded with natural fiber – A great healthy alternative to traditional wheat flour tortillas.
