Riz noir de Camargue
This long-grain black rice is similar in aspect to wild rice from Canada,but it is in fact a different plant. Rich in nutrients including iron, black rice has a nutty taste, reminiscent of freshly baked bread. Uncooked, the rice is black; cooked, it turns deep purple thanks to its high anthocyanin content (the same pigment as in blueberries). It can be mixed with other rices if a milder taste is preferred. Black rice is also known as forbidden rice because in China, only the Emperor was allowed to eat it. This product comes in a 500g (17.6 oz) package.
