Where To Buy Wild Rice?
A great product that I regularly use is Oh Canada Wild Rice. You may have to find it in a specialty food store, or even on Amazon. However, I was able to find a 250g bag in our local Your Independent Grocer the other day.
What is Oh Canada Wild Rice? It is certified organic Canadian lake wild rice. For those who are looking for Kosher certified foods, look no further.
It is packaged in a distinct SakPac packaging and is available in both 250g (½ pound) and 500g (1 pound) bags.
Wild Rice – An Excellent Source Of Protein
Wild Rice for hundreds of years was an important food source for the Native Americans. It became an easy to store food source that helped them nutritionally get through the long, harsh winters.
Later, as European pioneers came and settled in Canada, they too realized the great health importance of adding wild rice to their diets too. It soon became a staple food item.
During the 1970’s and 80’s a ressurrgence of interest in this native Canadian food source emerged. For those looking for a healthy food source, this one helps to fit the bill.
Wild Rice is an:
- organic food source
- kosher approved
- rich in minerals,
- high in protein
- and fiber.
So, although, wild rice is not truly a rice, but rather an aquatic grass seed, you will enjoy the unique taste it gives to your meals. And the nutritional value too!
