Whole grain versions of black venus or regular rice and brown rice retain all their nutritional value, including fibre, B vitamins and minerals. Whole grain rice takes about 35-45 mins to cook, depending on variety (Beware some quick-cook versions – they are part-milled and thus stripped of some fibre and nutrients). You will really enjoy the taste, texture, versatility and health benefits of black venus/brown rice.  Brown rice is especially soothing for the digestive and nervous system. The Japanese eat it when sick, as its healing powers are part of their folklore. (Pre-soaked rice will cook 5-10 minutes faster)
