What’s different from Black Rice and Glutinous Black Rice?

Black rice (also known as purple rice) is made from a range of rice types from the species Oryza Sativa, some of which are glutinous rice. Varieties include Indonesian and Thai jasmine black rice.

Black rice is a source of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants. The bran hull (outermost layer) contains one of the highest levels of anthocyanins found in food! The grain has a similar amount of fibre to brown rice and, like brown rice, has a mild, nutty taste.

Black rice has a deep black colour and usually turns deep purple when cooked. Its dark purple colour is primarily due to its anthocyanin content, which is higher by weight than that of other coloured grains.

Black rice is suitable for creating porridge, dessert, black rice salad, stir-fried black rice, black rice fish cake and many more!

Glutinous Black Rice is in the white bowl on the left and Thai Black Rice is in the green bowl on the right.
