A Tasty New Superfood

"Move over blueberries. Black rice, a whole grain with a nutty
flavor, is loaded with healthy antioxidants such as anthocyanins-
typically found in dark-hued produce such as blueberries and
blackberries, according to a Louisiana State University (LSU)
researcher who has been studying the rice's health benefits for
several years. The nutritional punch comes from its fiber-rich
bran husks, which are packed with both minerals and antioxidants,
natural chemicals that may help protect us against illnesses such
as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. One spoonful of black rice
has more antioxidants than a spoonful of blueberries."

Pick up your black rice at Lingonberries.
