Black rice is loaded with seven different antioxidants called anthocyanins, it is these compounds that make it so unique. Studies are being conducted to determine how this superfood can combat certain health problems of today. ** Historically it was thought that black rice was the key to longevity, and that just might be the case.
Black rice has a more nutritious profile than brown rice, and because of that it offers more nutrients when added to your baking or smoothie recipes. With more protein and fiber on a gram per gram basis, it can help provide satiety in an easy to digest form.** The sprouting process transforms the rice from its dormant state to a more bioactive food. Sprouting neutralizes phytic acid allowing for more nutrients from the black rice to be available for absorption. Sprouting also releases enzymes which support the assimilation of the nutrients from the black rice and any food it was consumed with.**
Black Rice, also referred to as purple rice and in Thailand as “mountain rice” (khao doi), is a dry – land rice. It contains anthocyanin antioxidants, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Touted as the most nutritious variety of rice with higher nutritional values than either white or brown rice.
MRM’s sprouted black rice powder is unique and superior to black rice which needs to be cooked because it is raw and non-sprouted. Sprouting grains lends to a more alive and bioactive food. Non-sprouted seeds are dormant and contain nutrient inhibitors such as phytic acid that can prevent absorption of nutrients.
“Dynamic freeze drying” turns this nutrient dense sprouted black rice into a fine, easily digestible powder. By not exposing the sprouts to heat, their nutrient profile is maintained. This process both dries out the sprouts and makes the large sprouts into a fine powder in one low temperature chamber, which results in a very fine powder that mixes and digests much more easily.
Care is taken in the handling of the black rice at every step, from the field to the shelf, to ensure the highest biological value black rice is delivered in as easy to use raw superfood ingredient that can be used in hot or cold recipes.
