Profile: What is the reason behind the prohibition of black rice?

The banned black rice image is a result of a search.
The pigment anthocyanin, which has significant antioxidant qualities, gives black rice its unique black-purple hue ( 2 ). Black rice was supposed to be so distinctive and nourishing in ancient China that it was forbidden to all but royalty.


Forbidden black rice has a nutty flavor and is high in minerals like iron and fiber. Consuming black rice can help you improve your heart health and general fitness. Black rice is high in lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids renowned for their role in eye health, in addition to protective anthocyanins.

Taste: If you're curious about the flavor of Forbidden Black Rice, it has a nutty, earthy flavor from the bran (outer husk) and a delicate, slightly sweet interior, according to me. In a nutshell, it's delectable!
