Product Overview

Biona Black Venus Rice is dark, medium-grain rice known for its bread-like aroma and rust-coloured grains that turn deep purple when cooked. 

Black Venus Rice is a hybrid that resulted from combining Italian and Chinese rice. Compared with regular rice, Black Venus Rice is higher in anthocyanins and fibre.

Hailing from Piedmont, Black Venus Rice is an organic rice with a mild nutty flavour and a slightly sticky texture, making it great for porridge and rice desserts. It can also be paired with dishes to add an interesting flavour and a nice pop of colour. 

It can also be milled to create rice flour for making steamed buns and rice cakes.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I cook Black Venus Rice?

Rinse the rice, drain it, then pour it into the pot with some water. The recommended ratio is 2 cups of rice to 1 cup of water, but you may adjust this according to your preference. 

Let it boil over medium heat, making sure the flame does not touch the bottom of the pot. Once boiling, reduce the heat slightly to prevent it from boiling over. Once the water has been reduced, turn the heat to the lowest setting and allow it to cook thoroughly. For steamed Black Venus Rice, allow 40 to 50 minutes cooking time.
