Black glutinous rice, also known as sticky black rice, is the unpolished, whole grain of traditional sticky white rice. It is a popular rice variety in Asia, and more recently in Western parts of the world. Despite its name ‘black’ rice, the color of the rice is closer to a deep, dark purple. The purple colouring lends to it being high in antioxidants and valuable phytonutrients.
As black glutinous rice is unprocessed, it retains more of all of its nutrients, making it an overall healthy food choice and it is also gluten free.
