Black Rice: The New Cancer-Fighting Super Food

'Did You Know… that black rice may be the new cancer-fighting super food?

Rich in antioxidant anthocyanins, exotic black rice is a whole-grain that competes with the antioxidant potency of fresh fruits. A study presented at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Council confirmed that one spoonful of black rice bran—equivalent to 10 spoonfuls of cooked black rice—contains the same amount of antioxidants as a spoonful of fresh blueberries.

Researchers at Louisiana State University analyzed bran samples from black rice grown in the southern United States and found them replete with low-sugar, high fiber plant compounds that have been proven to prevent heart disease and fight cancer.'
