Ever heard of Riceberry?

Well folks, this type of rice is fast becoming popular in Thailand.

And according to
Hot Thai Kitchen, Riceberry is the “newest superfood” that is not only nutritious but also “delicious”. Riceberry is also known as the newest black Thai rice variety.

Riceberry contains many antioxidant properties that help improve our immune system. It is also a good source of folic acid, beta-carotene, zinc, fiber and vitamin E. Because of its high fiber content, riceberry can aid digestion and is therefore, a great add-on to our healthy, balanced diet.
