Early this year my mother, who has the privilege of being a stay at home grandmother, was watching the Dr. Oz show and forwarded me information on Black Rice. I immediately drove to Whole Foods to pick some up! The great part about WF (not always "whole paycheck"), is that you can find items in dispensers and get only what you need and that is exactly what I did!
Through my little research and personal taste test, I found that black rice is a superfood, likened acai or any other antioxidant rich food. Unlike white or brown rice, black rice helps your cells fight cancer causing free radicals. Now onto the taste, it is very light in flavor and was somewhat floral. The color did bleed a little and the texture was no different than any other rice grain.
