Researchers have discovered that black rice is full of antioxidants known as anthocyanins, the same ones found in blueberries, grapes, and acai. Anthocyanins have been responsible for the popularity boom of the acai berry, and for good reason! They have been linked to decreased risks of heart disease and cancer and improved memory along with many other health benefits. Just one spoonful of the black-rice bran contains the same amount of these antioxidants as a spoonful of fresh blueberries – and without the sugar.
