Q. What makes Forbidden Rice® so special?
Forbidden Rice® has the darkest bran layer of any whole grain rice. It is this bran layer where most of the minerals, vitamins and fiber are stored. Forbidden Rice® contains a class of antioxidants called anthocyanins. For such a dark whole grain rice, it is extremely convenient, cooking in only 30 minutes and producing a roasted nutty taste with a hint of fruit or floral at the finish. In Chinese medicine they say that Forbidden Rice® is a blood tonifier, aids in the circulation of the blood and is high in chi.
