History of Wild Rice
When you see wild rice chances are it's not. Authentic wild rice is Native American hand harvested from the wild by canoe, and wood fire parched. The vast majority of today's 'wild rice' is a hybrid and not at all wild.
Wild Rice, 100% Whole Grain
State and tribal law distinguish authentic wild rice as Native harvested using the non-mechanized methods that have been handed down through generations for over a thousand years.
