Description

We all got used to thinking of brown rice as a healthier option to white rice, but what if we told you that brown rice has got a competitor now? Food to Live is happy to present a nutrient-rich, premium quality Red Rice available for sale. Not only will it bring a delicious taste and color to your dishes, but it also will fill them with a lavish number of antioxidants.

Red Rice is named after its color, taken from Anthocyanins content. Anthocyanins are mainly responsible for pigmentation and can be found in flowers, vegetables, and fruits. They also act as antioxidants and fight free radicals, offering anti-inflammatory and anti-viral functions.

Red Rice vs. Brown Rice

At first sight, the distinguishing factor between Red and Brown Rice is the color, and this is an indisputable truth. Red Rice is very like brown when it comes to texture, however, it is a little chewier, while the second one has a bit fibrous aftertaste. If you happen to have brown rice, you may use it as an alternative to red in many recipes, still, it won’t replicate the original flavor and nutritional profile of red rice.

It has a great amount of vitamin B1, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, and Selenium, which promote the immune system against infections.
