Canadian North Saskatchewan Ice Lake harvest Organic Wild Rice
Organic wild rice is grown in a sparsely populated glacial lake in the northern Saskatchewan prairies, Canada. It is natural, organic and nutritious. Wild rice is a species of grass that produces edible seeds resembling rice. However, it tends to have a more pungent taste. The plant grows best in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing streams, ideally between 75-90 cm in depth. The seeds ripen in late summer, between mid-August and early September. Northern Saskatchewan is a land of forests and lakes, developed on the glacially-scoured ancient rocks of the Precambrian Shield. The pristine environment of shallow lakes and slow-moving rivers in northern Saskatchewan provides an ideal habitat for wild rice. Saskatchewan wild rice is grown and processed without the use of chemical additives, colourants, or artificial flavourings. The large kernels mature in their natural setting helped only by the sun
