ORGANIC BLACK RICE, "Ancient"
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Oryza sativa L (aka Black, Purple, Forbidden, or Emperor's rice)
Black rice is a dark colored, short-grain rice that turns into a deep purple color once cooked. Also known as "forbidden rice", it is considered the healthiest variety of any rice on the market, containing anthocyanins which account for its dark color and high antioxidant levels as well as essential amino acids like lysine and tryptophan; vitamins such as thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), folic acid (B9); and dietary minerals including iron, zinc, calcium, manganese, and phosphorus.
Qualities: similar to brown rice, 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.
Common use: black rice's deep black color turns deep purple when cooked and has a mild, nutty taste.
Storage: keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark location

Ancient Organic Black Rice
Love the taste and health benefits associated with the product. Ended up mixing it half and half with India Basmati rice and pressure cooking it for about 9 minutes. A little butter and it was good to go. Thanks.
Unfortunately, A Product of China
I am very concerned as to whether this rice meets American Organic Standards. The rice is a product of China (had I known this, I would not have made this purchase) and foods imported from China are frequently found to contain unsafe levels of toxins.I would love to see the testing results for contaminates as to how “clean” this rice actually is. The price was quite reasonable; however, since it originates from China, I will not be repurchasing this rice.
