  1. Rich in nutrients:  a whole grain, meaning it retains the bran and germ layers, which are nutrient-rich. It contains a good amount of fiber, B vitamins (such as thiamin, niacin, and vitamin B6), iron, and zinc. These nutrients are essential for overall health and play a role in energy production, digestion, and immune function.
  2. High in antioxidants: Red rice, including Kattuyanam rice, contains natural antioxidants such as anthocyanins, flavonoids, and phenolic compounds. These antioxidants help protect the body from free radicals, which can damage cells and contribute to various health issues, including chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.
  3. Low glycemic index:  a lower glycemic index compared to white rice. The glycemic index measures how quickly carbohydrates in food raise blood sugar levels. Foods with a lower glycemic index are digested and absorbed more slowly, resulting in a gradual and sustained release of glucose into the bloodstream. This can help in managing blood sugar levels and may be beneficial for individuals with diabetes or those looking to control their weight.

Fiber adds bulk to the diet and promotes healthy digestion by preventing constipation and supporting regular bowel movements. It can also help maintain a feeling of fullness, which may aid in weight management.

The fiber, antioxidants, and other compounds found in red rice may contribute to lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as improved overall heart health
