ROOTZ ORGANIC BLACK RICE 1KG

Our Black Rice is a glutinous variety of rice which is nutritionally dense.  A spoonful of black rice bran contains more health promoting anthocyanin antioxidants than in a spoonful of blueberries, but with less sugar, more fiber and Vitamin E antioxidants.  It is also known as “Forbidden Rice” – a name which originated from China as it was served only for Kings & elites, and was forbidden for common.

Benefits of Black Rice

1. Rich in Antioxidants

The deep black or the purple hue of the black rice is a marker of its high antioxidant properties. Similar to blackberries and blueberries, that appear deeper in colour because of their high content of anti-oxidants. The outermost layer of the grain (the bran and the hull), contains immense amounts of the antioxidant-anthocyanin. In fact the amount of anthocyanin contained in black rice is higher than any other grain, including brown rice, red rice, red quinoa, or other colored whole grain varieties.

Anthocyanin can help prevent cardiovascular disease, restricting free radical movements which can cause variety of diseases like diabetes and even cancer. It can also help improve brain function and reduce inflammation .

White rice and other refined grains are stripped of their high nutrient content and beneficial properties in the milling process. Majority of the nutrients of rice are present in the outer layer, the hull and the bran, which are only retained in whole grains. Since black rice doesn’t undergo any refining or processing, it is able to retain its antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Black rice also contains important antioxidant- Vitamin E, which is useful in maintaining eye, skin, and immune health.

2. Natural Detoxifier

The phytonutrients present in black rice help cleanse the body of disease causing toxins (caused by free radicals). Black rice helps the liver (one of the most significant detoxifiers of the body) eliminate unwanted substances through its antioxidant activity.
