Organic Wild Rice from Food To Live is a seed of a grass water plant. It’s a very nutritious grain that beats regular Asian rice in the number of micro and macronutrients 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 blends with other rice varieties. The product offered by Food To Live is 100% ‘pure’ and was cultivated and processed without 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. Moreover, 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

There are many health benefits this grain provides. With every spoon, you get a boost of elements that nourish every system in your body. It’s loaded with B vitamins, Iron, Folate, Vitamin A, Manganese, Magnesium, Copper, and Zinc. The grain also contains smaller amounts of calcium, vitamin E, vitamin K, and selenium. It’s incredibly 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, 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.’ It 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 it to a boil, and let cook at a simmer until tender. Note that organic wild rice contains trace amounts of arsenic like all rice and the majority of grains. 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. According to the FDA, the amount of toxin in organic black wild rice is minimal and doesn’t pose health concerns. 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 to salads or turn them into sweet pudding.

Cooking Instructions
