Eden Foods, Wild Rice, 7 oz (198 g)
By Eden Foods2 Reviews
Expiration Date: May 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Eden Wild Rice hand harvested in northern Minnesota lakes by Native Americans in canoes as required by law. Parching it over a wood fire preserves and imparts a mild nutty flavor. Authentic wild rice is in danger of contamination from domesticated, hybrid strains grown in paddies. Eden Wild Rice is helping this age-old tradition continue, and it supports the Native American traditional culture. Good source of fiber and protein, gluten free and heart healthy.*

iHerb Customer Reviews
Wild rice is a delicious side dish to any meal, and can also be used in salads. This rice is high in protein and B vitamins and is harvested in North America. It has a nice chewy texture that anyone can appreciate over the gummy texture of white or brown rice. It does take a little longer to cook but is worth the wait. Worth every penny!

This is an incredibly fragrant and tasty rice, nothing like regular brown rice at all. It tastes delicious and contains a more complete protein source than normal rice. I love that it's harvested by Native Americans using traditional methods! You should deffinetely try this rice.
