Whole Grain Rice is usually brown but can be black, purple, red, or a variety of exotic hues. Health bonus: Rice is one of the most easily-digested grains - one reason rice cereal is often recommended as a baby's first solid food. This makes rice ideal for those who are gluten-intolerant. Wild Rice is not technically rice at all, but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
