THe other day I purchased a bag of brown rice (generic) and ground it up in my vita-mix into flour. In anyone's opinion...am I poisoning myself eating this and using it for baking? DO you all call every manufacturer? I dont have too much $$ to buy the specialty flours and such so I thought I might grind my own?
Do these companies really know if their food is contaminated with wheat or not? I am so confused...

Brown rice is gluten free. As far as cross contamination goes, I am very sensitive and have never had a problem with any rice. Rice is gluten free and safe for us to eat.

THanks--I was just concerned as the flax seeds and quinoa that I bought in bulk I was advised by the company not to use them because of possible CC. The rice is from a different place though. Dont any rice packagers also process wheat in their facilities? I just dont know how careful I need to be! T

I have used brown rice several years and have had no problems....as far as contamination goes....I don't think rice is even grown in a area where they grow wheat, etc....I grind my own brown rice flour too....I even grind it course for grits....and yes flour from the health food store is too expensive for me too.....I haven't had any problems with the rice.....

I make my own brown rice cereal. The texture is similar to steel cut oats, or Irish oatmeal.

I grind the rice on the coarsest level in our coffee grinder, then mix 1/4 cup brown rice cereal w/ 1 and 1/2 cup liquid (I personally use half water and half milk) and cook it in the microwave for 9 minutes at half power. Let it sit for another couple of minutes. Then fix it up w/ whatever you like (I use home made vanilla extract and a little brown sugar).

Delicious, and that little bit fills me up until lunch.

FYI, I buy cheap brown rice at the grocery store and haven't had a problem. But, I'm not super sensitive, either.
