Amazing Facts of Black Rice Nutritious Benefits

Black Rice – The bountiful alternative

In recent times, discussions around fitness and health have been creating quite a buzz all over the world. While an increasing number of people have been adopting one or the other method towards staying healthy and fit, they all seem to be fighting a common troublemaker – The carbs. Almost every form of diet or workout begins with the advice of taking on a low-carb diet to complement their journey.

If you are in India, especially the Southern side, cutting down carbs involves bidding goodbye to the ever-favourite ‘Rice.’ Considering that, Rice is the staple diet in Southern India and mostly Asia as well. If you were to ever converse with a South Indian on their diet preference, they’d gladly say Rice>Rotis. In a situation as such, what can be the alternative? Or do you think there is one?

The answer lies in the ‘Forbidden Rice.’

Packed with Antioxidants

Benefits of Black Rice

Black rice is rich in antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory and potential anticancer properties. It possesses anthocyanin, a plant compound which gives it the purple-black colour; also known to improve cardiovascular health.

High on Fibre

Black Rice is a rich source of dietary fibre. The presence of large quantities of phytonutrients, a natural plant chemical, helps cleanse the body of toxins and boosts liver health, by helping it eliminate unwanted substances through its antioxidant activity.

Cholesterol and Diabetes Controller

Black rice is a healthy rice alternative to our normal ones. The compounds – anthocyanin and phytonutrients help combat bad cholesterol (LDL) and aid in keeping overall cholesterol levels under check.

These components further influence blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity in the body. As a result, the body can utilise glucose efficiently, thus helping in the management of diabetes.

Naturally Gluten-Free Most whole grains contain gluten which may cause negative gastrointestinal effects like bloating and abdominal pain in people who are allergic to gluten or suffer from Coeliac Disease. Black Rice is naturally gluten-free and nutritious; serving as a healthier diet option.
