Glutinous Rice?

We have a recipe that calls for black rice but I’ve read that it has a high gluten content.  Since I’m doing a gluten-free diet, is this something I can use?  Cheri – Lawrenceville

Rice does not contain gluten.  What is referred to as glutinous rice simply has a higher rice starch content, making it glue-y-er than long grain rice.  Go ahead and give your black rice recipe a try, and let me know how it is!
