This medium whole grain, aromatic black rice is a delicate alternative to white rice. It has a mild nutty flavour and is ideal for preparing risottos (with cheese, fish and shellfish) as well as rice salads and side dishes.
Black 'Venere' rice originated in China and was cultivated exclusively for Chinese Royalty until the 18th century. It was introduced to the Vercelli region of Italy by a Chinese expert in the 1990's. Named after the Goddess of Love, it is said to have potent aphrodisiac properties and is sometimes known as the 'Forbidden Rice'! Venus rice has impressive health benefits, it is low in calories and rich in essential amino acids, fibre, vitamin B, calcium, iron, zinc and selenium. It also boasts one of the highest levels of anthocyanin (a powerful antioxidant with many health benefits) of any food!
