Black “Forbidden” Rice

Did you know that black rice (like brown rice) is a whole grain and is high in iron and fiber? Black rice also contains great levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin (also found in blueberries), which in addition to being a stand up cancer-fighter also plays a role in preventing heart disease and improving memory.
