Black Forbidden Rice

Black Forbidden Rice

Oryza sativa L.

Legend has it Black Forbidden Rice was reserved solely for the emperors of China.  The penalty for possessing the forbidden grain was death, but no need to worry – you don’t have to be royalty to buy it from us. The characteristics of the flavor are not unlike that of brown rice, but with more intense earthy and nutty notes. We recommend soaking the grain overnight before cooking it to better aid your digestive system by breaking down the phytic acid and protein found in the rice. Plus, soaking the Black Rice overnight will shorten the amount of cook time.
