Too bad they used Safflower Oil.  

Also for those that can have vinegar there is a Black Rice Vinegar which contains citric acid which helps metabolize food into energy.  It says it has a smoky yet sweet flavor.

Also Black Rice serves up twice the fiber of it's pale cousin (2 grams pe 1/4 cup) - so says the article.

Also go with Black Sesame Seeds as it meets 40% of your daily calcium needs by tossing 1/4 cup on yoru salad or fish - that's apparently 10 times as much as you get with the white variety.

Yes black rice is different from Wild Rice.  It's totally black.  And yes I found it locally.

Google it for more info... It's really good! Did I already say that?  ha....

As far as I can tell, it's not listed anywhere, so for now, it's a neutral!

well then I won t worry about that for now.....
and wild rice is a dot, so not there yet!

the wild rice I see down here, is totally black, also, so now I wonder if that really is wild rice or rather black rice!!

Re: Umeboshi plum vinegar - That's what Dr. D said to me. His exact words were "You might find it a little salty". Good grief, is that stuff salty.    I've been pouring kefir with seasonings on my salad. It tastes like ranch.

yes but we can have umeboshi plum itself!  And it takes just a little to season stuff.. I LOVE a little on beef.  Wonderful.. just a tad though.

Also Kefir is neutral for us (even though my tummy doesn't go for alot of it); we could do the ranch thing using just the umeboshi plum - Mayflowers would you share the Ranch recipe?

I found it on the Whole Foods salad bar once.  Just plain black rice.  It was really good.  Interesting.  Chewy.  But I'd eat it again if I had the chance.

When I can't find Wild Rice, I substitute half each of Black & brown Rice for my stuffing...

Black Rice Vinegar is called "Kurozu" in Japanese - One of the many beneficial drinks for the elderly over there.

I found "China Black Rice" bread at my health food store in the section by the Ezekiel Bread.  It's really yummy.  Chewy, a little sweet, very satisfying, and an outrageous deep purple color.
