Since plain rice is a naturally gluten free food, there is no need to sound the siren and no, rice is not as troublesome as oats. There might be cause for concern if you buy rice from a company that also does a lot of rice mixes that also contain a wheat component, but then you could check their policy on keeping food separate during manufacturing. Some people may be intolerant of rice but I don't think that is common.

As others have mentioned, Lundberg is a safe company for Celiacs. Read their website, as they give detailed information on their manufacturing processes. They also have risotto mixes that are gluten free and very good.

I have switched to Lundburg rice even tho I don't have a problem with rice, I usually do rinse rice. But I have heard so many say how good Lundburg is, I decided to just be safe :)

OMG I never knew this! THIS IS WHY I JOINED THIS FORUM!!!! Thank you so much for this info. 
 
Man, this means that rice can be just as troublesome as oat. This needs to be bigger news. People need to know about this!


its not "big news" because it isn't a problem. I use any brand of plain that I find. I do like the different "flavors" of rice that Lundberg has sometimes.

Because I have such a problem with CORN, I checked the rice companies to make sure there was no corn CC. (Some companies "polish" rice with corn starch.) I wrote to Uncle Ben's, explained I was a celiac who was also "allergic" to corn. They followed up with both an email AND a phone call. No gluten. No corn. I have been using Uncle Ben's for almost three years now with absolutely no problems.

I've always been an oatmeal girl, but unfortunately at this point, I cannot eat oats even certified gluten-free one.  I loved the texture of oatmeal, and that it was always eaten warm.  I tried Bob's Red Mill Brown Rice Hot Cereal, but even though it is labeled gluten free, it didn't sit well with me.  

 

I agree that Lundberg is a great brand!  I ended up buying the sushi rice even though I don't have any intention of actually making sushi in the near future  :) It has a great creamy consistency without anything added, but I do enjoy adding Earth Balance spread to it.  I haven't found the sushi type in many stores, but I did find it at Whole Foods.  I was told in my nutrition class last semester that rice is the least reactive food, so if patients are having a hard time with different grains, a dietician will try rice.

Andrew, I really think it depends on the person.  Brown rice feels like it sits in my stomach, but white rice feels like it processes right on through.  To each their own  :)

 

Make sure not to eat white rice.   Go with brown.   Its easier on the stomach because it contains fiber.    Also look for sprouted rice.

I had no idea that rice and barley are frequently transported together. That is a game-changer for me.  I've all but given up on rice due to

weird reactions to it when I eat it. Gluten in food normally takes 36-72 hours to react on me.  But rice was an immediate clog in my throat. Weird. Thanks for the info.

Who knew? Where did you find this out? Learn something new every day! When I thought I was having a problem with Rice this never came up. I will have to do a search on the subject. Thanks :)

W8in, I found the info on one of the corn allergen sites, so then I wrote to Uncle Ben's.

 

Love your new avatar by the way. :D

I usually buy big bags of jasmine and basmati rice (if I only bough Lundberg I'd be broke pretty fast), and haven't had any issues with cross-contamination, but I do know that i can't eat too much at once. I always give it a good rinsing first, though

Ironically enough, I have a lot of trouble with brown/whole grain rice. The fibre might make it healthier for you, but for some it can be harder to digest. Brown basmati isn't as bad, but unfortunately I have to stick with the white stuff.

Soy and/or dairy is also another possible intolerance. Also, if youre still early in the recovery stage, your stomach probably can't handle as much as you'd like it to.

Interestingly my partner, who is not celiac, can not handle brown or black rice or quinoa while I, the celiac, can handle it all.  We do pretty much stay away from any rice (or other grain) as we eat mostly all paleo.

When I was first diagnosed gluten intolerant, I found I could not tolerate grains of any kind. I haven't tried any of them again yet because I am still recovering and don't want to have problems. I believe there are many people who are able to incorporate gluten free grains back into their diet again successfully and others who are not. Don't know which one I will be yet. I do know that with time it gets easier to accept the limitations without feeling deprived.

When I was first having tummy issues, my gi told me to eat white rice - not brown.  Brown is more fibrous and may not digest as easily.
