Native to Northwestern Ontario,
Wild Rice is enjoyed today as a delicacy throughout North America.
Canadian Pure Wild Rice is a naturally grown aquatic grass seed, not a farm crop.
Unlike much of the rice you find in your local grocery stores,
true natural Wild Rice is not genetically modified and grows without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. Canadian Pure Wild Rice grows on non-depleted soils at the bottom of pristine lakes,
it is always growing and reseeding itself naturally.
Once harvested, even over time it will retain the same nutrient value and flavour.
Easy to keep, easy to cook, and the perfect accompaniment to any dish,
Canadian Pure Wild Rice is delightfully nutritious, healthy and 100% natural.
Canadian Pure Wild Rice is incredibly delicious high in protein and fiber,
starch free, low in fat and gluten free.
In addition, Wild Rice is a terrific source of the minerals potassium and phosphorus,
the amino acid lysine, and the vitamins thiamine, riboflavin and niacin.
You cannot grow these seeds once they have been de-hulled and packaged for consumption.
Wild Rice is considered a sacred component of Ojibwa culture.
Canadian Pure Wild Rice is a healthy food staple for us and also for many migratory waterfowl and other wild animals.
