2 reviews

We have run out of stock for this item.

100% black glutinous rice from Japan.

The skin of black rice has been milled off a little, making it easier to bring out the color and softness when cooked. (It has the same condition and meaning as 10% of milled rice.)

The purple pigment on the seed coat is an anthocyanin pigment (a kind of polyphenol).
It has a sweet scent, and the more you chew it, the more the fragrance spreads, and you can enjoy a moderate elasticity and a chewy texture.
It is also called "purple rice (purple black rice)" because the rice turns purple when it is milled at 50%.

If you mix 10% of white rice and cook rice, you can easily cook red purple rice. Even if it gets cold, the taste remains the same and the color is beautiful, so it is ideal for rice balls and lunch boxes.
(10% is a guideline for introduction. Please eat as you like.)
