About Our Wild Rice
Contrary to what many people believe, wild rice is not rice at all but a grass. Much of it sold today is grown in man made lakes or ponds(paddy rice), where the lakes are drained in the fall for harvest. Our rice is all grown in Manitoba, Canada’s natural, pristine lakes which produce a longer, fuller darker grain. As our summer days are longer, our natural rice has the opportunity to mature to perfection. Our rice meets or exceeds the organic standards for Canada, the USA and Europe. We are certified organic through OPAM (Organic Producers Association of Manitoba) and Non-GMO verified through the Non-GMO project.
Our certified organic wild rice is gluten-free, has NOT been genetically modified and is very nutritious. Wild rice is truly one of nature’s health foods. Canadian organic lake grown wild rice is a great source of fibre and iron for anyone. Vegans or vegetarians trying to eat more protein will appreciate our lake grown wild rice. Enjoy Canadian organic wild rice’s great taste in a variety of dishes or give as a gift (see the ordering page for gift ideas). Make a gourmet dish tonight with our versatile wild rice.
