100% Italian Rice
The original whole black rice
Black rice has exotic origins, but it is cultivated in Italy, where historically it has been obtained from the cross-breeding of ancient black Chinese rices, which give it its characteristic fragrance, and Italian risotto rices. That’s why its plump grains, rich in fiber, are suitable for any recipe thanks to their ability to absorb seasonings, enhancing them with their freshly baked bread aroma. The parboiling (parboiled) shortens the cooking time.
