  • 500g
  • Origin - China.

We like our rice like we like our coffee - dark, deep and delicious. Emperors in Ancient China believed that Black Rice was the source to everlasting youth and longevity so banned the general public from consuming it to ensure there was always supply for royalty, hence the name "Forbidden Rice''. There aren't many(any) studies to substantiate the everlasting youth claim but it is high in fiber, B-vitamins and anti-oxidants and should be eaten often simply because it is delicious AND healthy. 

We like it served cold with grilled veg and a soy sauce based dressing.
