Today I am going to blog about BLACK RICE – and yes it is a grain! And yes it is a carbohydrate!
The bran hull (outermost layer) of black rice contains one of the highest levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin found in any know food.
To summarize the healthy benefits of black rice here they are:-
1. Healthy source of carbs
2. Rich source of antioxidants
3. Inflammation Fighting
4. Weight Management
5. Liver Health
6. Heart Health
7. Cognitive Function
8. Anti Cancer Effects
And why carbs are good for you (non-refined) is they are slowly absorbed in our system avoiding spikes in blood sugar levels and examples are vegetables, whole grains, beans and fruit.
