Red rice is a special variety of rice that is red in color because it contains anthocyanins. It is generally unhulled which has not been through the process of grinding or flaking skin completely, so the layer of skin that surrounds the grain still exists. This is the layer of skin that contains nutrients and fiber that are important for the body. Red rice has a nutty flavor, and a high nutritional value, as the germ of the rice is left intact.
