So what exactly is wild rice? Contrary to what many people believe, wild rice is not rice at all but a grass. Much of it sold in the world today is not even wild but rather cultivated varieties that do not occur naturally. Wild rice is really an annual aquatic seed Zizania aquatica found mostly in the upper freshwater lakes of Canada.
Cooked wild rice has a rich nutty flavor, sometimes described as a smoky flavor, and a texture that is delightfully chewy. The slender, elongated grains that often come to market are premium grades of truly wild, uncultivated wild rice sold in gourmet markets can be as long as one-inch and the colors can vary from medium brown to nearly pure black.
The vitamin and mineral content of wild rice is comparable to that of other grains, making it a good alternative to get more variety in your diet. It is high in the B vitamins niacin, riboflavin and thiamine, as well as potassium and phosphorus. It is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids.
Wild rice is a whole grain that is high in fibre and protein while low in calories and fat, an excellent combination for weight loss. The grain also includes phosphorus, potassium, and the B vitamins. Whole grains offer many benefit other than a lower fat and calorie content.
Ground wild rice (Flour) is used for baking and used a batter for muffins, pancakes & breads. This serves as a GLUTEN FREE balanced diet, the extraordinary richness of flavor.
