Black Rice

Black Rice

Black rice was once called forbidden rice. It dates back to ancient China, where the Chinese people were eating a black variant of rice.


With time, black rice has become popular among all sections of people. In India, it is cultivated mainly in the North East region (Chak Hao) and southern parts (Kavuni in Tamil) of India. It has umpteen health benefits. Here are the five benefits of black rice.

  1. Rich in antioxidants

Black rice has the highest amounts of antioxidants among all varieties of rice. The deep black or the purple-blue in black rice is the indication of its antioxidant properties. The outermost layer of the black rice grain contains large amounts of an antioxidant named anthocyanin. Anthocyanin helps prevent cardiovascular diseases and also helps improve brain function and reduce inflammation.

  1. Good source of fibre

In every half cup of black rice, there are three grams of fibre. The rich fiber content helps regulate bowel movements, prevent constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating. Fibre also helps bind toxins and waste in the digestive tract and flush it out after the cycle of digestion is completed. Fibre is also good to help you stop binging on fatty food as it gives a feeling of being full after consumption.

  1. Prevents the risk of obesity

If you are fighting obesity, then black rice is the smarter option for you. Since it is full of fibre, it gives the feeling of being full and prevents overeating.

4.Works as a natural detoxifier

In this age of junk food and binge eating, natural detoxification helps avoid several diseases. Black rice is a rich source of phytonutrients, which is a natural detoxifier and removes disease-causing free radicals from the body.

  1. Improves heart health

Black rice contains more fibre and lesser fat, both are significant in heart health. Fibre helps remove excess cholesterol and lower blood pressure, while a low level of fat and cholesterol prevents various heart diseases.
