Wild rice is also called Canada rice, Indian rice, and water oats . In Canada, it is usually harvested from natural bodies of water. The plants grow in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing streams; often, only the flowering head of wild rice rises above the water. It is the seeds of this plant that we call wild rice. It is recognized for its chewy texture and nutty flavour.

Wild RiceWild rice is actually a cereal grain. It is also rich natural source of Vitamin B, iron manganese, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, phosphorous and carbohydrate. In addition, it is gluten-free, high in protein, high in fiber and low in fat.
For information on how to harvest wild rice, read …
Canada's largest producer of wild rice is the province of Saskatchewan, who exports 56% of the total whereas Ontario exports only 12% and Manitoba 27%.
Several Native American cultures, such as the Ojibway, consider wild rice to be a sacred component in their culture. For these groups, this harvest is an important cultural (and often economic) event.
Ojibwe Wild Ricing Tradition


Wild Man Ricing in Northern Manitoba harvests exclusively in natural bodies of water and no pesticides or fertilizers are used in the production of their wild rice. The freshly harvested rice is roasted to perfection using wood-fired roaster. Roasting draws out the natural nutty flavour and the wild rice cooks in 25-40 minutes (no presoaking required). It is a 100% organic product.
