It 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 and lowering your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Wild rice is a good source of essential minerals such as calcium which builds strong bones and teeth and iron that prevents you from feeling tired.
Wild rice provides ten percent of the daily value for vitamin C which helps prevent cell damage and reduces risk for certain cancers, heart disease and other diseases.
