Have You Eaten Black Rice?

A research study on black rice that I read recently got me curious about this grain, which is rarely seen in most parts of India.

The study says that black rice which is native to China and Thailand, has a higher quantity of anthocyanins (a type of antioxidant) compared to other varieties of rice.  It even beats blueberries in its antioxidant content.  Secondly, black rice is said to have much more vitamin E and fiber than other varieties of rice.  This would perhaps put it lower than other varieties of rice, on the glycemic index scale.
