It can be used in a range of dishes, from savory to sweet, and is linked to potential advantages like improved heart health and digestion. Historically reserved for nobility, black rice is now widely available and prepared similarly to other rice types. It offers a visually striking and nutritious option for those seeking diverse and health-conscious foods.
