  • Wild rice, like commercial rice, is grass.
  • Wild rice is an important food source.
  • Like other wetland plants, wild rice can improve water quality by trapping sediments and taking up nutrients.
  • The rice is dark-brown after being properly processed.
  • Note: since the seeds are stored in cold and wet conditions, they produce an unpleasant, rotten smell.


After harvest, rice grains may be planted while fresh or processed for eating. Processing requires several steps: parching to remove moisture, cracking the sheath covering the grain, and winnowing the chaff. Wild rice is usually cooked by boiling for 30-40 minutes and can be used in a variety of dishes. The grain is nutritious, with a high protein and carbohydrate content, and low in fat.
