With a chewy texture and distinctively strong nutty flavor, Shiloh Farms Wild Rice is a long, slender, coffee-colored kernel that butterflies open during cooking to reveal a cream-colored interior. Native to North America, this ancient grain (technically, grass) was harvested by Native American tribes in the Great Lakes region, who considered it sacred. Today, it is prized not only for its robust flavor, which naturally pairs well with dried fruits, nuts, fish, & poultry, but also for its rich nutritional value.
A high-fiber complex carbohydrate, wild rice is significantly richer in protein and fiber than most other forms of rice. In fact, wild rice places second only to oats in protein content per 100-calorie serving (followed by quinoa). Low in fat and sodium-free, it is a great source of vitamins and minerals, especially zinc, manganese, phosphorus, and B Vitamins.
