Wild Rice is a whole grain
Definition of Whole Grains: Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, and/or cooked), the food product should deliver approximately the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed.
The following, when consumed in a form including the bran, germ and endosperm, are examples of generally accepted whole grain foods and flours:
|Millet||Corn, including whole cornmeal & popcorn|
|Quinoa||Oats, including oatmeal|
|Rye||Rice, both brown rice & colored rice|
|Teff||Sorghum (Also called milo)|
