Description

Venus rice is a hybrid variety of brown rice obtained centuries ago in ancient China by cross-breeding other types of rice. It has a slightly longer grain than ordinary rice, is ebony in colour and takes on a brownish hue when boiled. Today, it is called ‘Venus’ in honour of the Roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility. This analogy refers to the fact that, in the past, black rice was considered a powerful aphrodisiac.
