Uncle Ben's Ready Rice

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anyone know if the original long grain ready rice is safe? The ingredients say preecooked long grain rice, water, canola oil, and acetylated monoglyerceride. It's the acetylated which I've never heard of before. And also, I think I may have heard someone say something about this type of rice before.

Thanks,

Sara

Oh no....not with the canola oil....just had that experience tonight and I never have any luck with canola oil with my celiac. My suggestion, by a small rice cooker, so you can keep rice on all day....then you scoop out what ever you want put it in a pan with some non hydrogenated oil....and go to town and add some all natural chicken (that which has not been fed antibiotics or had preservatives put on it by the store)

Other might say no.....but I have no luck with anything really packaged unless its raw foodws or natural...to me any of these oils are iffy especially in anything "instant"

I was just on the uncle Ben's website...

here is what it says....and I am certain the canola is either expeller pressed or hydrogentated...and the wheat protein....

PRECOOKED LONG GRAIN RICE; WATER; PRECOOKED WILD RICE; HYDROLYZED SOY/CORN/WHEAT PROTEIN; CANOLA OIL; SUNFLOWER OIL; VEGETABLES (GARLIC*, ONION*, PARSLEY*, SPINACH*, CELERY*, TOMATO*, CARROT*); SUGAR; AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT; SALT; ACETYLATED MONOGLYCERIDE; SPICES; DEXTROSE; SMOKE FLAVOR; NATURAL FLAVORS. *DRIED.

I would avoid it.....and cook it from scratch...

Canola oil is actually quite healthy for you. It's one of the healthiest cooking oils out there.

In 1974, rapeseed varieties with a low erucic content were introduced. Scientists had found a way to replace almost all of rapeseed's erucic acid with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fatty acid. (This change was accomplished through the cross-breeding of plants, not by the techniques commonly referred to as "genetic engineering.") By 1978, all Canadian rapeseed produced for food use contained less than 2% erucic acid. The Canadian seed oil industry rechristened the product "canola oil" (Canadian oil) in 1978 in an attempt to distance the product from negative associations with the word "rape." Canola was introduced to American consumers in 1986. By 1990, erucic acid levels in canola oil ranged from 0.5% to 1.0%, in compliance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards.

This light, tasteless oil's popularity is due to the structure of its fats. It is lower in saturated fat (about 6%) than any other oil. Compare this to the high saturated fat content of peanut oil (about 18%) and palm oil (at an incredibly high 79%). It also contains more cholesterol-balancing monounsaturated fat than any oil except olive oil and has the distinction of containing Omega-3 fatty acids, a polyunsaturated fat reputed to not only lower both cholesterol and triglycerides, but also to contribute to brain growth and development.

Certainly better for you than garden variety vegetable oil.

Canola oil is not a natural food for humans. Liquid vegetable oils have been newly introduced into the human diet since the start of the industrial age, and are nothing like what we evolved on.

I have the same feelings.

Everytime some new wonder product is pushed it almost always seems to have studies 10 yrs later with negative effects.

Scientists had found a way to replace almost all of rapeseed's erucic acid with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fatty acid.

Yes just as generations of agriculture changed wild grasses into high gluten wheats...

However as I have said before "there is no such thing as the healthy diet"

Every last thing you consume had good and bad... too much water can kill you, extreme but for the pirpose of the point.

Parmesan cheese (recently mentoined with eKatherine) has tremendous amounts of vitamins and minerals ... the real stuff has diary from controlled pastures and the cows are checked to be healthy naturally low in fat and loads of other benefits AND a heck of a lot of casein. the highest of any cheese by weight.

So what is good for one is not good for another!

back on the original topic: pre-cooked rice is unnatural, it needs things added and chance is those additives are probably determental .....

I live on the whole brown rice 90 second bags from Uncle Ben's and have yet to get sick from it,

I realise you don't mean that literally but obviously if you did that is not a healthy diet either.

Which is worse, pre-cooked 90 sec brown rice or proper natural but dehusked white rice?

I dunno......

The answer is probably natural brown rice but ....

Uncle Ben's - Per customer representative in June, 2005, the following UNCLE BEN'S Brand Products are gluten free (free from wheat, rye, oats, and barley):

* Uncle Bens Original Converted Brand Rice

* Uncle Bens Instant Rice

* Uncle Bens Whole Grain Brown Rice

* Uncle Bens Instant Brown Rice

* Uncle Bens Boil-in-Bag Rice

* Uncle Bens Long Grain and Wild Rice (discard seasoning packet)

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Original Long Grain

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Whole Grain Brown

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Spanish Rice

Minute Rice and Uncle Ben's are also now owned by Kraft.

The nutritional content of this precooked proccessed stuff is pretty suspect though. My rice cooker is my best friend. You can get them for about twenty bucks, pretty much anywhere. Target, Kmart, walmart, etc.

In my opinion, its actually even easier than making Uncle Bens.

Add water, add rice, turn on, walk away, come back, eat. All you need is counter space.

I eat the quick rice with few problems.

For some reason though, basmati rice bothers me.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
