Why is black sticky rice, black in colour?

Black or dark purple in colour?

It’s the unpolished whole traditional sticky white rice. Mostly consumed in Asian restaurants and in North Eastern parts of India. Despite it being called black its colour is closer to deep dark purple! At Home of Spices, we work closely with farmers who practice sustainable farming and traditional methods only. We have tied up with farmers in Meghalaya, working under the aegis of Manipur Skills and Rural Livelihood Mission. The rice has uneven black coloured bran layer that gives it a nutty flavour and is rich in nutrients. Black sticky rice is gluten free and is considered a super food! This rice has no pesticides, chemical or herbicides.
