Rice Polish
0

7 posts in this topic

I am always looking for new flour blends that do NOT contain potato starch. I came across a three rice flour blend which, in addition to brown and white rice flours, calls for "rice polish". This is the definition I found online for rice polishings (nothing for rice polish) :

Function: noun plural

: the inner bran layer of rice rubbed off in milling and used as a source of thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin called also tikitiki.

Well, I never heard of tikitiki either, but I have to presume they are referring to rice bran? I had initially expected to find glutinous rice, but no.... So rice polish, rice polishings, the same thing? i.e., rice bran?? It could make a heckuva difference to any recipe if that's not what it is :rolleyes: This was supposed to be an all-purpose blend.

Well, I've read that rice polish is what is removed from rice when making white rice. It's the outermost layer. The part that makes rice brown. Basically, the outer layer is polished off, exposing the white, innermost portion of the grain. So polishings sounds like the same thing to me.

That's all that I could figure, not that I've ever seen any yet. Good source of fibre and nutrition :D

What a mine of information you are, RiceGuy. Thanks for that. It also answered the question for me of what pollard is, which is what we used to feed our chooks chickens when I was a kid, although I believe that was wheat pollard. Maybe I will abandon that flour blend since it seems very unlikely I will ever find any rice polish here, no rice being grown here.

I had some but never knew what to do with it so threw it out after it got really old. Can't remember where I bought it but maybe online.

Can you tell me what it looked like, its texture? What you would replace it with?

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
