This is my first time trying black rice, and boy am I glad I decided to go with Farm to Folk's offering. When cooked, this black rice turns a deep purple color, has a chewy texture, and boasts a pleasantly nutty, slightly sweet flavor that makes it the perfect accompaniment to both savory and sweet dishes. In addition, black rice is rich in anthocyanins (the very same antioxidants found in acai berries), lower in calories, and a far better source of fiber and protein than its white, brown, and red cousins, making it perfect for people who want to lose weight or simply eat healthier without giving up rice. For those who may be wondering if black rice can be cooked in a rice cooker, the answer is yes! A 1:2 rice-to-water ratio works perfectly fine for Farm to Folk's black rice. While not necessary, I'd recommend pre-soaking (for at least an hour) and rinsing the grains first to reduce the cooking time considerably. I've cooked this black rice both on its own and as an ingredient in multi-grain rice, and have enjoyed it both ways! 🤤 Will definitely repurchase!8 months ago
Tbh i don’t see any difference in taste with rice (because i ❤️ rice, i’ll eat them anyways). This black rice is healthier compared to white ones and i hope that this will help me with my diet. The price is reasonable for 1kg and i got this with free shipping so it’s worth the price. Di na hassle to go to the grocery and same price lang if dun ka bibili. As for the delivery, it was delivered the next day. If you are not a heavy eater and lives alone at tamad mag grocery, buy your goodies here at beautymnl. Good selection with reasonable price.8 months ago
