Wild Rice

Riviana is the world’s largest marketer of wild rice, offering just the right grain for your desired application. Wild Rice is the only grain native to North America, and is the seed of a plume-topped aquatic grass found mainly in Minnesota, California and Canada.

This whole grain is often combined with other types of rice or grain to create attractive blends. With a distinctive color, an enticing smoky and nutty flavor and slightly chewy yet tender texture, wild rice has long been a favorite of those who enjoy gourmet cuisine. This rice is also known as “Canada rice”.

Riviana carries a wide range of Wild Rice types which vary between flavors, textures, colors and cook length. With so many different types out there, there’s a Wild Rice variety for everyone!

Our ingredients are the perfect base for your meal creation

Grade A Wild Rice

Wild Rice is also known as the “Caviar of Grains,” and features a unique roasted, smoky and nutty flavor. Our Grade A Wild Rice cooks in 50-60 minutes and ranges from dark brown to black in color with each granule holding a glossy sheen.

Grade B Wild Rice

Also ranging from dark brown to black in color, this wild rice is our most versatile grade. It cooks in 30-40 minutes and makes an excellent side dish when paired with wild game, duck, pheasant, pork and seafood⁠ – especially salmon.

Grade B Scarified Wild Rice

Our scarified rice cooks rapidly in just 20-25 minutes. This variety ranges from dark brown to black in color, and features visible hairline scratches on the bran layer which allow it to absorb water more readily.
