Healle Black Wild Rice 454g  

Black Wild rice is actually the only grain native to Canada. The grain’s colour is dark brown hue and varying texture, it was in fact built on the rise of the Great lakes.

Our Canadian Grown Organic Black Wild Rice grows in the pristine lakes and streams of northern Saskatchewan. It matures slowly and drenches through the warm summer months, free of pesticides and herbicides. Helped only by nature and the sun, his natural ripening takes longer, but yields a grain unequalled by any other. It is fuller, longer, plumper, with a rich taste and high nutrient content. 

Black wild rice contains more protein than regular rice and many other grains. A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of wild rice provides 4 grams of protein, which is twice as much as regular brown or white rice. It is also low in calories, with 101 calories, 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of cooked wild rice provides slightly fewer calories than the same serving of brown or white rice, which offer 112 and 130 calories. It also contains more fibre, potassium and zinc, both options are gluten-free and rich in antioxidants.Getting sufficient dietary fiber is essential for keeping cholesterol low. Black wild rice is a good source of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA).

Black wild rice boasts impressive amounts of several nutrients, including manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc; it also contains small amounts of iron, potassium, and selenium.

This Wild Rice goes well with alliums, beans, fresh or dried fruit, soft cheese, vegetables, nuts or seeds, greens or herbs, seasonings, seafood or meat.
