Black rice was cultivated by ancient empires in the Far East dating back to 150 B.C. It became known as “forbidden rice” and was grown specifically for emperors. Ancient civilizations believed black rice was rich in nutrients that protected their emperors from illness and increased their longevity.

Now we call Hinode black rice a super food. This 100% whole grain rice is still eaten for the beneficial nutrients found in its dark, black bran layer. Hinode black rice is naturally gluten free and contains fiber, iron, niacin, magnesium, thiamin and antioxidants.

Hinode black rice provides a beautiful contrast when presented with colorful fruit, vegetables and salads. Its nutty texture and slightly sweet flavor are coveted by professional and home chefs alike.
