Red Rice is rich in minerals like iron, proteins and dietary fiber and has a nutty flavor.
The rich red color is due to the presence of an antioxidant known as anthocyanin. This compound is said to be beneficial for several health problems and also to lose weight.
One cup of cooked red rice contains about 80% of manganese that helps our body to retain proteins and fats. It is also a rich source of magnesium, molybdenum, and phosphorus. Red rice is also said to contain smaller amounts of zinc and potassium.
