Legend has it that black rice was once reserved for the sole consumption by Chinese Emperors and that anyone else found eating it was executed. Full of antioxidants and not commercially produced in the U.S., black rice has been hailed for its high nutritional value and as a source of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants (more than in blueberries). The bran hull (outermost layer) of black rice contains one of the highest levels of anthocyaninantioxidants found in food. The grain has a similar amount of fiber to brown rice and like brown rice, has a mild, nutty taste. Venere is black rice that originated in China and is grown in the Po Valley of Italy. It is a pleasantly aromatic whole grain rice, cooks in just 18 minutes and releases a distinctive aroma similar to sandalwood and freshly baked bread. If boiled and seasoned with oil or butter it is an excellent supplement to meat or fish. It is also delicious if cooked in salted water then transferred to a frying pan with oil, garlic and seasoning with a sprinkle of parsley. The black appearance adds to a unique presentation with many other foods. Vacuum packed for freshness.
Contains the same antioxidants found in blueberries and acai berries called anthocyanin. Anthocyanin has been linked to decreased risk in heart disease and cancer, improved memory, and other health benefits.
