Uncle Ben's Ready Rice
0

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Uncle Ben's Ready Rice(long grain white) is gluten Free. I know the regular Uncle Ben's Long Grain White Rice says gluten free right on the box. When I checked the Ready Rice package it didn't say gluten-free. Ingredients are : Long grain white rice, sunflower oil, water, salt. Anyone have any thoughts on this. I love the convenience of microwaving the rice in just 90 seconds!

thanks-

Cali

There are different varieties in the 90 second pouches - some flavored some plain. I have had a couple of them and experienced slight reactions to the brown rice. For me, the plain white rice in the 90 second pouch was fine.

If you have a Trader Joe's near you, you can get frozen cooked rice (brown or white) that is *nothing* but rice that you can heat in the microwave (granted, it takes 150 seconds, not 90...).

I was just asking about the Long Grain White Ready Rice. I know that some of the flavored ones have obvious wheat in the ingredients.

Says wheat in the ingredients, so cant be safe. Unless you ment this one

If so it looks it might be safe, but with out calling them I couuld not commennt beyond that.

I constantly eat the white rice and the brown rice and have yet to have a problem. It makes a quick go to meal for me with some beans...

I'm on a healing diet that does not allow rice. I also do not microwave much now due to the enzimes(sp) that say microwaving distroys. I need all of those I can get. LindaLee

I love the flavored spanish style rice. It is great for a quick mexican dinner. However, it is one of the few that seem to be gluten-free.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
