Scientists are reporting evidence that black rice — a
little-known variety of the grain that is the staple food for
one-third of the world population — may help soothe the
inflammation involved in allergies, asthma, and other
diseases. Their study appears in ACS’ bi-weekly Journal
of Agricultural and Food Chemistry

Anti-inflammatory effects of black rice,... [Int Immunopharmacol. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI

Supplementation of black rice pigment f... [Asia Pac J Clin Nutr. 2007] - PubMed - NCBI

I thought the post was interesting. I recently had black rice for 2 meals, and my RA has been a little better. I never would have thought of correlating the two - as it is, it may be coincidental.

If any of the posters in the medical field can verify that the two articles above are saying the same?

Based upon my limited knowledge, it seems to be.

I had meant to get some black rice but completely forgot. I'd be interested in seeing what it tastes like, if nothing else.

I did a quick search and saw this:

"...Because it retains more of its nutrient-rich outer shell than brown rice, black rice rivals even blueberries in antioxidant power. Once a delicacy reserved for emperors in Ancient China, the "forbidden rice" is becoming almost common."
