Wild Rice

What is Wild Rice

Despite its name, wild rice isn’t exactly rice.

Wild Rice is a tall aquatic grass (Zizania palustris) and the grain that can be harvested from them. The plant grows best in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing stream, ideally between 75-90 cm in depth. The seeds ripen in late summer, between mid-August and early September.

Northern Saskatchewan is a land of forests and lakes, developed on the glacially-scoured ancient rocks of the Precambrian Shield. The pristine environment of lakes and slow moving rivers in northern Saskatchewan provides an ideal habitat for wild rice.

Saskatchewan wild rice is grown and processed without the use of chemical additives, colourants, or artificial flavourings. The large kernels mature in their natural setting helped only by the sun.

Saskatchewan is now the leading producer of lake grown wild rice in Canada.


Wild Rice is low in fat and contains 50% more protein than plain white rice.

With its high fibre content, wild rice helps improve digestive health and at the same time maintains a healthy weight, lowering your risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Wild rice is a good source of essential vitamins – it provides ten percent of the daily value of vitamin C which helps prevent cell damage and reduces risk for certain cancers, heart disease and other diseases.

It is stacked with minerals such as calcium which builds strong bones and teeth and iron that prevents you from feeling tired.
