Our 100% organic black rice is deliciously nutty, and very rich in antioxidants and essential nutrients (iron, vitamin, phosphorus, fibre).

Black rice is one of the rices richest in protein (per 100g, 9g for black rice vs. 7g for brown rice).
Whilst many whole grains contain gluten, black rice is a highly nutritious, naturally gluten-free option that can be enjoyed by those on a gluten-free diet, as well as providing a protein, fibre and iron rich accompaniment for those who tolerate gluten. Popular in Asian dishes and for black rice pudding, or to replace brown or white rice with an alternative that's high in fibre, protein and antioxidants.

HOW TO USE

Black rice can be used anytime you might choose a brown or white rice instead. It is very popular in Japanese poke bowls that grow in popularity in Australia as well as in stir fries, sushi (great in lunchboxes to sustain energy) and black rice pudding .

Cooking black rice is easy and similar to cooking other forms of rice. To keep the rice from becoming sticky when cooking, rinse $ swirl then drain in cold water prior to cooking to remove some of the extra starch on the surface. To prepare, combine rice and water or stock (1 cup rice to 2 1/4 cups water or stock) in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once boiling, cover it and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the rice for 30–35 minutes until tender, chewy, and all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove the pan from the heat and let the rice sit for 5 minutes before removing the lid. Use a fork to help fluff rice before serving.
