Black Dragon Rice is a special variety of rice. It is elegant, delicious and very healthy. It is a true superfood. Its black color is the result of a dense concentration of dark purple anthocyanins. When Black Dragon Rice is prepared (steamed, pressure cooked, etc.), it becomes a beautiful dark purple. It can be prepared, served and consumed just like brown rice. It can also be used to make breads and cakes. When a seasoned semi-clear-broth vegetable soup is poured over the cooked Black Dragon Rice (Ron Teeguarden’s favorite method of preparing and consuming Black Dragon Rice), the flavor explodes in the brilliant purple soup broth. Anthocyanins are critical natural nutrients that have profound benefits for the human body. They are among nature’s most potent antioxidants. More antioxidants are available from Black Dragon Rice than from an equal weight of blueberries, and with less sugar. Black Dragon Rice contains 18 amino acids, iron, zinc, copper, various carotenes and a variety of vitamins. It is a natural source of vitamin E. It is a superb source of soluble and insoluble fiber. According to Chinese dietary understanding, Black Dragon Rice, like most “black” herbs and foods, tonifies Jing. It can be used as a daily whole grain by those who are on a program to increase Jing. It specifically nurtures the kidneys, as well as the liver and stomach. This whole rice does not contain gluten. It is estimated that one person out of every 133 people in the United States are unable to tolerate gluten due to “celiac disease,” a debilitating disorder of the celiac valve and 6%-7% of people may have “gluten sensitivity,” characterized by brain fog, headaches, digestive problems and rashes after consuming gluten. If you are one of the 0.5%-7% of the population that is allergic or sensitive to gluten to one degree or another, this is a grain that you may consume without fear of gluten. If you are one of the 132 out of 133 people who is not allergic or sensitive to gluten, Black Dragon Rice can give you energy and provide powerful nutrition.
