Red rice is a variety of rice that is colored red by its anthocyanin content. It is usually eaten unhulled or partially hulled, and has a red husk, rather than the more common brown. Compared to polished rice, it has the higher nutritional value of rices eaten with the germ intact.Red rice has lots of fiber, due to the bran, and its flavour is significantly more powerful compared to hulled rice, tasting more nutty and full. Red rice works well with a number of foods or can be eaten by itself. It can also be included in risotto and other combined rice dishes.
