Its antioxidants are both fat- and water-soluble, allowing them to potentially benefit multiple parts of the body. Black rice contains more fibre, iron, and protein than regular brown rice, and especially white rice.
  • Like other whole-grain rice varieties, black rice has a low glycemic index, meaning that sugar is absorbed more slowly, providing a more stable energy source and avoiding the spikes in blood sugar associated with other carbohydrate-rich foods.
