Nature's Earthly Choice Wild Rice Gluten Free Description
One of the oldest ancient grains enjoyed by native tribes of North America was originally known as Indian Rice and today is called Wild Rice (Zizania palustris). Wild rice is not really a 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 areas for wild rice today and is the region where this premium rice is sourced. 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 of 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.
Combine 1 cup of Wild Rice to 3 cups of water. Bring the water to a vigorous boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. The rice is done when the kernels puff open. If you prefer chewier rice, reduce the cooking time slightly.
Wild Rice is delicious served by itself or blended with other grains..
