Venere rice is a brown rice, a source of fiber and high in phosphorus, with an unmistakable natural black color that releases a characteristic aroma of freshly baked bread during cooking. It is originally from China, but is currently grown in Italy, in the Po Valley. Legend has it that it was appreciated at the court of the ancient Chinese emperors for its aphrodisiac nutritional properties, hence the name of forbidden rice.
