I keep hearing conflicting information regarding Wild Rice. I have read, in many places, that wild rice is actually a seed and not a grain. Therefore, would it not coincide with a Paleo style of eating? Thanks in advance.

Regardless of wether it is a grain or a seed, it packs a relatively large glycemic load. It does have nutritive value, but try to keep the usage down if you're going to eat it.

IMO, it's a grain.. I've never really thought otherwise. Where did you hear it was a seed?

"Wild rice" is not a true member of the rice family. It is actually a grass with edible seeds.

Quinoa is botanicly a fruit...but all of these things pack a serious glycemic load, as was previously mentioned. Thanks Kevin.
