Jasberry rice is the newest member of the ‘superfood family’, redefining the rice category with exclusive qualities - being organic, non-GMO and with much higher antioxidants than any other rice on the market. Jasberry rice has 40 times higher antioxidants than brown rice, seven times higher antioxidants than kale, 4 times higher antioxidants than quinoa and 2.8 times higher antioxidants than blueberries.
This gluten free, vegan-friendly rice was developed through natural-cross-breeding, obtaining a rich dark purple colour; Jas refers to the rice flavour and taste, while berry comes from the huge number of antioxidants. Anthocyanins give both blueberries and Jasberry rice their ravishing colour. One cup of Jasberry rice makes a generous three cups of cooked rice.
In addition to the glorious colour, the taste is wonderful; soft at first bite with deep aromatic flavour, to complement many dishes, particularly Asian style foods. Jasberry rice makes wonderful colourful salads and vibrant nourish bowls, enjoy in autumn soups or use it to make a memorable side dish that adds some WOW factor to your dining table presentation. Replace white rice with Jasberry rice and pack more flavour and antioxidants into your diet.
