Safe Brands Of Rice Besides Lundberg?
0

5 posts in this topic

So I've recently been able to add RICE to my diet!!! :D This is HUGE - I've been on the same 8 safe foods for over a year and am extremely sensitive to any CC. I do very well with white rice, but brown rice caused GI distress. Anyway, I've been eating Lundberg, which is great, but the price hurts. Costco sells 25-lb bags of different kinds of rices at fantastic prices, most of which are grown outside the U.S. Any super-sensitives have experience with other safe brands?

Also, they did have one brand of "parboiled golden rice" that specifically said gluten free. But #1 what is parboiled, and #2 would this technically be a brown rice or a white rice?

ETA: here's what it is: http://www.amrice.com/3-1.cfm?bID=22

It sounds like something I should avoid... the bran layer is part of what makes brown rice harder to digest, no?

I was super sensitive and still am pretty sensitive and have never had any problems with the rice at costco - I eat the basmatti in the burlap bag and also the jasmine rice. My costco sells Lundberg rice in 10 lb bags for $10 so you might ask the manager if they can order it.

Sorry I can't help with the rice brand. :-(

...but re: the brown rice vs. the white rice. Have you ever been looked at for fructose malabsorption, by any chance? It's a condition that can involve problems with specific grain, veggies, fruits, etc... But brown rice causing problems and white rice being safe happens for those with fructose malabsorption, so I thought I'd mention it. :-)

I've got problems with oats, so I've always had reactions to Lundberg's products.

I used to not react to RiceSelect products... but that has changed recently and I now have them on the "no-no" list for myself.

I really find I have far fewer issues with non-US products a lot of times... my current brands of rice are the JFC Internation/Dynasty brands (they have a jasmine rice, and a sushi rice that I also use for risotto). I'd really rather buy rice that comes from Thailand, since they're not as much of a wheat-based food culture than a lot of other places. Seems to work for me.

Thank you all so much!! I'm going to get that burlap bag of basmati next time I'm there, yeehaw! I was thinking that stuff grown outside the US would be less likely to have gluten used as a cover crop - good to know I'm not alone in that thinking. :) T.H., neither I nor my naturopath think it's a fructose issue - I'm able to eat apples and drink apple juice all day long with no trouble. We'll get to the bottom of this somehow!
