I have been looking for the healthy rice for months. This is the most attractive price for black rice. I never tried the brand before but I usually mixed with brown rice 1:1 and cook in brown rice cook, tasting as good as white rice and kids love colorful rice.

Lol. Yes, the pigment is water soluble. That doesn't mean it is "dyed."

The average Amazon reviewer has the same IQ as your average conspiracy theorist.

Lotus Foods is a known brand.

You only say that because you're obviously part of the Deep World-Encompassing Rice-Dying Conspiracy! Wink

Photos of the rice in reviews show a black interior.
Real black rice is only black on surface.
Real black rice's pigment turns red with vinegar, fake does not.
It's white rice colored with a dye.

Okay, buddy. Let me spell it out for you.

Black rice is actually a very dark purple. The same pigment that makes blueberries appear "blue" - anthocyanins. These are water soluble, you don't need a mild acid to make it disassociate. Blueberries easily stain fabrics without the presence of acid, kapish?

The pigment is concentrated in the hull of the rice, which is part of what makes brown rice brown and in this case, black rice "black." Removal of the hulls is what makes white rice "white."

It has absolutely nothing to do with dyeing or any such thing. But if you're making food decisions based on Amazon reviews, I suspect you're in that camp of brilliant souls who are using horse dewormer to fight a respiratory virus. In that case…there are microchips and trackers embedded in this rice, so that's why you don't want to eat it. The "dye" accumulates in your body but is only visible if you use special goggles with the lenses spray painted and while wearing a hat made of aluminum foil.

Kinda self-contradictory there... real black rice is black on the inside and outside is what I think you meant.
