One of the oldest ancient grains enjoyed by native tribes of North America, Wild Rice was originally known as Indian Rice.
Wild Rice is not really rice at all, but a grass indigenous to the Great Lakes Region of the United States and the Boreal Forests region of Canada. Minnesota is one of the largest growing regions for wild rice today and is the region where we source our premium rice.
Wild Rice is a whole grain that is high in protein, is a good source of dietary fiber, and contains the amino acid Lysine. It is also a good source of several other minerals and vitamins including potassium and phosphorus, as well as thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin.
Wild Rice is low in fat and like most rice is gluten-free.
