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!

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
