Low-carb sushi is the real deal

Filed under: In The News — Tags: — @ April 25, 2004

If you thought low-carb sushi (think rice) sounds far-fetched, think again–black rice cuts the carbs and raises the nutrients.

bq. Black rice has about 60 percent fewer carbohydrates and is higher in fiber and iron than white rice, which has been stripped of its nutrients except for some “minimal B vitamins,” says registered dietitian Lisa Dorfman, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.

Expect to pay a little more for black rice in your sushi, and prepare for a, “slightly nutty, sweet flavor and a chewier texture.”
