It is gluten free, if that's what you mean...? Please see the following link for more information on Minute Rice products:

Multiple autoimmune diseases, including celiac, Hashimoto's, psoriasis, autoimmune hepatitis, RA, SLE. Also have fibromyalgia.

Tested Fall 2008: bloodwork, biopsy negative; HLA DQ8. Doctor believes results negative due to prednisone and Imuran taken for autoimmune hepatitis.

Dx with celiac disease because of dietary response, genetics, and family history of celiac disease.

yes it is gluten free and certainly is a "quick fix' for meal making in a hurry.

However, have you considered trying brown rice? Brown rice is less processed and has more nutritionl benefits. higher fiber, lower glycemic index, more vitamin content...

I highly adocate the puchase of a rice steamer. It's an investment that will pay its worth back to you over time. My rice steamer cooks my rice to the perfect doneness and consistency every time. Plus it also steams vegetables wonderfully as well!

Since I am on the go, I make a batch of rice on the weekend, and after its cooled, store it in a tightly sealed plastic container in the fridge. It usually lasts me thru the work week, and all I have to do is microwave it briefly and voila! I have the perfect complement to my meal.

yes, you are very right. Before we got a rice steamer we used a brand of rice called Success, and you could get it in either white or brown. It was very convenint and came out nicely every time.

If you don't have a rice steamer this is definitely the way to go, as cooking the regular brown rice in a pan is a slow process and hard to get it just right ... (not too mushy or sticky)

It was when we got the rice steamer we stopped getting the instant varieties, as we liked the flavor much better and the rice steamer gets it right every time!

I too love my rice steamer. My MIL gave it to me. I can't imagine eating it any other way now! I do keep instant rice on hand for the times my husband cooks supper and it is easy and quick for him.

I have been using Uncle Ben's Natural Brown Rice for a while now (says gluten free on the box)..

Recently my husband and I have started using the Minute Rice Single servings that you can put in the microwave for a minute (little white cup). They come in Brown Rice, Wild Rice, White and Chicken Flavor (they say gluen free on the back). They come in really handy with busy schedules rather then waiting 20-30 minutes for the box rice. We still use the box rice but when we are in a hurry or stuck at work for lunch the single serving Minute Rices are great!

Edit: Oh... There is a $1 off coupon inside the box where if you buy two you get the $1 off... The cashier should let you tear one off of the ones you are buying to use it. It is on the top inside so if you peak in you can see it.

We only eat rice maybe once a month. So I just get rice boil-in-bags. Ten minutes is all it takes. For a while, there was a jasmine variety that was very good, but that seemed to disappear when there was the rice shortage and prices went up a few years ago.

best regards, lm



BTW, what's white and crawl's up your leg?

Uncle Ben's perverted rice! :D
