Eden Wild Rice hand harvested in northern Minnesota lakes by Native Americans in canoes as required by law. Parching it over a wood fire preserves and imparts a mild nutty flavor. Authentic wild rice is in danger of contamination from domesticated, hybrid strains grown in paddies. Eden Wild Rice is helping this age-old tradition continue, and it supports the Native American traditional culture. Good source of fiber and protein, gluten free and heart healthy.*
