Description

Organic Wild Rice is tasty and vibrant.

Organic Wild Rice is actually a seed grain of a wetland grass called Zizania Aquatica.  This is why it is more sought after than traditional rice grains.  One 164g serving of cooked Organic Wild Rice is a source of Folate, Phosphorus, Zinc and Manganese.

It is an ancient seed grain variety sometimes called ‘Canada Rice’ that is a popular variant to traditional white or brown rices.  The plant is 10-15mm in length and the seed grains are cured and roasted to give a black appearance.

This is a great rice to try in summer recipes such as rice salads and tabbouleh style dishes but it also goes well with curries for added colour and texture.  You can combine it with other rices or grains for added texture and flavour.

If you interested in other speciality rices try our organic brown jasmine rice, organic black rice, organic white basmati rice, organic brown basmati rice and organic red rice.

Origin: USA

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, sesame, soya, peanuts.
