Wild Rice Nutrition Info

These are just some of the reasons that make wild rice a highly nutritious staple in a balanced diet, not to mention, it's delicious!

Because wild rice is actually a cereal grain, not a species of rice, it gains some major health benefits over white, brown and other types of rice. It's a great source of protein, fibre and a range of minerals. It is an alkaline-forming food, meaning that it can counteract some of the effects of our high acidity diets. It's impressive nutritional profile has made it a staple in the diets of cultures throughout North America.

As a diet food, a cup of wild rice will nourish you, make you feel full, but is very low in fat and is not a calorie-dense food.
