Black Rice And Antioxidants

Why use black rice? Once served exclusively to royalty in ancient China, black rice provides more nutritional benefits than brown and red rice combined. Black rice is rich in fiber and loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E, protein, and iron, as well as phytochemicals, phytonutrients, and anthocyanins (substances that maintain good health by increasing antioxidant activity and scavenging free radicals). Not only does black rice have a low glycemic index, it also lowers the risk of cancer. 
If you compare a spoonful of black rice with a spoonful of blueberries, black rice contains more antioxidants but with less sugar and more fiber and vitamins. Black rice is gluten-free.
