Why You'll Love It:

As legend has it, this ancient grain was once eaten exclusively by the Emperors. But, lucky for us, it can now be enjoyed by anyone! This Chinese black rice is prized for its delicious nutty taste, soft texture, and beautiful, rich, deep-purple color.

It's also a nutritional and medicinal powerhouse: it provides the richest nutritional value of any bran rice, with higher levels of vitamins and minerals (including iron). And it has a comprehensive range of amino acids, proteins, vegetable fats, and essential trace elements needed by our bodies, AND it's considered a blood tonifier. Doesn't get much better than that!

Unlike other black rice from Asia, Forbidden Rice isn't glutinous or rough, and it cooks in just 30 minutes to reach a superior flavor, texture, and color. It makes for a truly striking presence on any plate! And it pairs beautifully with all cuisines – use it steamed plain, in a pilaf, stir-fry, salad, or pudding.

* Everything at PlantBelly is vegan-friendly and contains NO animal derived ingredient. Our symbols highlight foods that are naturally free from certain allergens. But they're not certified as such, so double check for certifications that satisfy your unique needs 'n wants.
