The Health Boost Tip

Wild rice is actually not a true rice, but is a type of grass from a different botanical family, It's often mixed with other rices as it's expensive. We usually buy in a mix with red rice, which has a nutty flavour. Wild rice is slightly higher in protein than most wholegrains and is high in fibre, antioxidants, folate and magnesium.
