Organic Wild Rice from Food To Live is a seed of a grass water plant. It’s a very nutritious grain, which beats regular Asian rice in the number of micro and macro nutrients it provides. It has a fantastic nutty taste which makes every dish with our Organic Wild Rice special.

Despite the name, this grain isn’t a type of rice. They are entirely different plant species, but you can often find organic wild rice blend with other rice varieties. The product offered by Food To Live is 100% ‘pure’ and was cultivated and processed without the use of any toxic elements.

Our organic non-GMO wild rice is gluten-free and safe for any diet. It’s low in calories, which means you can even eat it when on a weight management program. Even your dog can eat wild organic rice as long as you don’t serve it too often and don’t season it with anything.

Benefits of Organic Wild Rice

Organic wild rice health benefits are many. This grain gives you a boost of elements that nourish every system in your body. It has quite a bit of B vitamins, Vitamin A, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc.

The grain also contains smaller amounts of calcium, vitamin E, vitamin K, and selenium. It’s extremely beneficial for vegans, who often don’t get enough lysine from their diet. Organic Wild Rice is one of the best plant sources of this amino acid.

Note that although many people compare (and sometimes confuse) organic brown and wild rice, these grains are different. Organic wild rice has long dark-brown seeds that pop when cooked. It also contains more proteins and dietary fiber, as well as some essential vitamins and minerals.

The best thing is that this grain is very ‘nutrient-efficient.’ This means that despite its superior nutritional value, it’s lower in calories and carb content than brown rice. Organic wild rice also contains only 1.2g of sugars and 0.6g of total fats in a cup of the cooked product.

How to Cook Organic Wild Rice

Cook organic wild rice the same way you would any grain. Rinse it thoroughly, bring to a boil, and let cook at a simmer until tender. Note that like all rice and the majority of grains, organic wild rice contains trace amounts of arsenic. The plant soaks it up from the soil regardless of the cultivation practices.

Unfortunately, the environment is contaminated with arsenic, so it’s present in many foods and drinking water. The amount of toxin in organic black wild rice is minimal and doesn’t pose health concerns according to the FDA. To reduce it further, you should rinse grains for 60 seconds and cook them in no less than 4 cups of water/broth per cup of wild rice.

You don’t have to pre-soak this grain, so just rinse and start cooking. Season it with any spices you like and make a delicious veggies stew. You can also add cooked rice in salads or turn it into sweet pudding.

Healthy, flavorful rice. I like black rice because it has flavor and is healthier than white rice.. It takes a while to cook, but I cook a big amount and freeze the cooked excess. Maybe I like that it's use was once restricted to emperors and their courts.
of 5 starsYummy and delightfully chewy. I went paleo last year and I miss rice like crazy! So I have gone a tiny bit off the grid by choosing to add "wild rice" to my food list. Technically this is not a grain of rice but rather a seed of wild grass. I know I'm bending the rules some but this stuff has great flavor and food value and satisfies my craving for rice. It has 30% fewer calories than brown rice and 40% more protein, plus tons more vitamins and minerals. What's not to love?

First time ordering and was happy with the quality of the Wild Rice. Will order again.
from JLuStew
Delicious. My first time buying this product, although we have bought other products from same Company. It is so delicious when it's sprouted. Easy and fast to sprout. Great quality for your money.
Awesome tasting. This is a great tasting product. And easy to cook. I am not supposed to eat much rice; but this is not truly a rice; and DELICIOUS, nonetheless. Also very nutrient-dense. Love the taste and the texture.
No Tax. Free Shipping. Final price.
