Product Description

With a mild-nutty taste the black covering of the rice provides highest level of anthocyanins, which is an antioxidant. This highly neglected type of rice has very high therapeutic properties. As of now, it covers just about 10 per cent of the total cultivated rice area in Manipur. And the prime reason for this poor spread in acreage is its poor yield and demand.

Health Benefits

  • In Manipur the water in which black rice is boiled is further used to wash hairs, it is believed to make hair stronger.
  • It has anti carcinogenic properties and its bran soothes inflammation due to allergies, asthma and other diseases. This sticky rice variant has several medicinal and nutritional properties.
  • Black rice contains more Vitamins B and E, niacin, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc compared to white rice. It is rich in fibre and the grains have a nutty taste.
  • The anthocyanins not only act as antioxidants, they also activate detoxifying enzymes.
  • The rice arrests proliferation of cancerous cells, by inducing death of cancerous cells (apoptosis). It has anti-inflammatory properties and has anti-angiogenesic effects (inhibition of the formation of new blood vessels which encourages tumour growth). In fact, it prevents invasion of cancer cells and induces differentiation – the greater the differentiation in cancerous cells, the less likely they are to spread, and be harmful, as testified by Li-Ping Luo, a celebrated Chinese cancer specialist and his research team.
  • The research, in particular, shows that anthocyanins from black rice specifically arrest growth of breast cancer cells.
