Black rice is commonly referred to as "forbidden rice" because thousands of years ago in China, it was reserved only for royalty and the very wealthy, and strictly forbidden to be grown or consumed by the common people. Luckily, today we can find black rice at most supermarkets.
In Chinese Medicine, black rice is considered to be an excellent food for strengthening the kidneys, stomach, and liver. This sweet, nutty flavored whole-grain is one of the top sources of anthocyanins, the same antioxidant compounds found in berries.
