We have already created a healthier version of the Rice Krispy, called Kamut Krispies, but we wanted to recreate this American classic yet again using another ancient grain, Forbidden Rice or Black Rice due to it's amazing health benefits!
We turned to the rice experts, Lotus Foods, to learn why Forbidden Rice is so healthy. Apparently, this “ancient grain was once eaten exclusively by the Emperors of China” to increase health and longevity; and new studies show that “10 spoonfuls of cooked black rice contains the same amount of antioxidants as a spoonful of fresh blueberries”!
Now you know what you will be making for your child's next bake sale!
