Red rice is a special variety of rice that is red in color. It derives its rich red colour from an antioxidant called anthocyanins.
This antioxidant is beneficial to reduce symptoms of inflammation, cancer prevention and weight loss management.
Red rice is generally unhulled or partially hulled rice which has a red husk, rather than the much more common brown.
Red rice has a nutty flavor, and a high nutritional value, as the germ of the rice is left intact. It is packed with nutrients such as B-vitamins, iron, calcium and zinc.
