What is it?

Wild rice is a pseudo-grain; an aquatic grass plant which produces a nutritious whole grain. Parboiled rice is produced by steaming the rice in its husk, which causes the nutrients to migrate into the kernel. The rice is then dried and milled, with the polished grain retaining the vitamins driven into it by the parboiling process. The yellow tint of the rice occurs as a result of the trapped nutrients.

Source

Dainty's wild rice is grown in fresh water, in northern regions of North America along the Canada/US border. The parboiled rice is most commonly of US origin, from the Southern states bordering the Mississippi Delta.
