WHY BLACK RICE IS GOOD FOR HEALTH?
BLACK RICE is a very rare rice variety rich in antioxidants,fibre,iron,anthocyanins and many more nutrients. It is cultivated in relatively small amounts, compared to other types of rice varieties.This whole grain rice also packs umpteen health benefits. Black rice or the forbidden rice is a rare and a very old variety of rice that has been growing in India for centuries. It is mainly grown in the North East region (called as Chak Hao) and the southern parts (called as Kavuni in Tamil) of India. It is a nutrition superstar when compared to other rice varieties and let’s see how?
WONDERING WHY IT IS CALLED FORBIDDEN RICE?
Let me explain the secret behind this nomenclature,
During the days of the Ching and Ming dynasties in China, Forbidden Rice was exclusively reserved for the Chinese Emperors to ensure their longevity and good health. It was announced as an ELITE CLASS FOOD and common people were prohibited from cultivating and consuming the rice. Since then, it earned its much renowned label – THE FORBIDDEN RICE – A nourishing staple that is reputed to promote long life and good health.It has also been used by the Kings of Chola Dynasty in Tamilnadu and even today it is widely used in Chettinadu cuisine.
Black rice is higher in antioxidants than brown or white rice. Black rice also has a low Glycemic Index (GI) of 42.3 (Low GI foods are considered those with a GI of 55 or less) compared to white rice, which has an average GI of 89, and brown rice that has an average GI of 50 and this makes black rice an excellent food for diabetes.
