Black Rice

Organic
500g

The superfood of rice varieties; full of protein, high in iron and low GI. When cooked it has sweet alluring aroma, and produces a deliciously nutty taste. Rich in antioxidants, yet soft in texture, black rice can be enjoyed everyday in salads or paired with your main meal.
