Wild Rice
Wild rice is not technically a rice, but the seed of aquatic grass originally grown around the Great Lakes of the U.S. Some commercial cultivation of it takes place in California and the Midwest. It's usually consumed in a blend with other whole edible seeds, grains, or other rice varieties and generally has about twice the protein and fiber of brown rice, yet less iron and calcium. Native American tribes have been instrumental in the increase in the collection of this seed in the wild.
