Any main stream unseasoned grocery store rice would work.

Oh..whoops...I have a severe corn allergy so I have to have a corn free one so the enriched rice at the grocery store wont work. The only brown unenriched rice I have seen in my store is Mahatma and I think it's cc with corn.

I think it's cc with corn.

There would not be any cross contamination in the field, due to the vast difference in the growing environments.

Is rice enriched with corn?

Is corn cc washable from rice? I would think that cc might be variable from batch to batch, and if you had a washing method you trusted, it might be worthwhile just to wash the rice every time.

Enriched rice is enriched with corn. The enrichment is sprayed on with corn starch. Things such as this make corn allergies really hard to live with because most of the time it is not listed on the label.

For me, with my corn reaction trying to rinse the corn off would be the same as trying to wash gluten off of something.

Enrichment

Over 70% of the white rice consumed in the United States is enriched. Rice naturally contains thiamin, niacin, and iron. However, during the milling process, the quantities of these nutrients are reduced. To bring the nutritional value of the milled product up to that of whole grain (brown), rice is enriched with thiamin, niacin, and iron. All enriched rice is additionally fortified with folic acid. The fortification of folic acid in all enriched grain-based products became law in January 1998. Enrichment levels of these nutrients, which are specified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, provide for a minimum of 2 milligrams thiamin, 13 milligrams iron, 16 milligrams niacin, and 0.7 milligrams folic acid per pound of raw rice.

The enrichment mixture is applied to rice as a coating. Therefore, it is recommended that rice not be rinsed before or after cooking and not be cooked in excessive amounts of water and then drained. The enrichment and other water-soluble vitamins and minerals would be lost.

Six states have laws that require enrichment of all milled rice: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, New York, and South Carolina. However, enriched rice is readily available in all states.

Right, the coating they talk about is corn.

So you need a company that doesn't sell any enriched products, or processes the enriched stuff in a different plant? Boy, that's a tough one.

Just got this from Lundberg. I guess it's well worth the extra cost!!!

Dear Valued Consumer,

Thank you for taking the time to contact Lundberg Family Farms it is very important to us to hear from our valued consumers. We do not enrich any of our rice varieties additionally; the facility is free of corn.

Thank you,

I'm in Australia so product availability seems to be different. I am sensitive due to my DH. I have tested many "enriched" products much to my skins distress.

I now stick to rice only ingredient list that are sourced from Thailand. Here in Aus we have many of these and Thailand doesn't have a history of want/need/forced introduction of wheat based ingredients. Thai rice, thai rice noodles etc have been my saviour for staple food.

All of this has been a long journey of experiment and failure. The Thai product for me (available in abundance here in Aus) had been my only starch staple I've been able to rely on apart from fresh potato.

Do you use any of the Thai rice flours? If so, what brand? How about potato starch? If I could do well with those 2 ingredients, a lot would open up for me as far as baking options. Thanks, Dave

I use Rice flour from Thai World Imort & Export Co. Ltd.

In stead of potato starch I use Tapioca from the same company.

I use Glutinous Rice flour from Kridsasa Foods Co. Ltd for some desserts.

As long as it comes packet from Thailand, I don't really care about the brand, as cc in Thailand is highly unlikely.

Last April I was in Thailand, ate everywhere, so who knows which brands I've consumed. Never got glutened there.

If you're having a hard time finding processed potato starch that works for you, it's actually really easy to make it yourself, if you're interested.

I am using Lundberg now...thanks to you :)

I also can't have corn and thank you for starting this post as I was unaware of rice possibly being treated with corn. And I am intending to soon make my own rice flour and rick milk.

For rice at meals I have been using A Taste of Thai Jasmine Rice...very yummy but about $4 for a bit over a lb. of it.

I saw Lundberg for the first time yesterday at ShopRite and got some. They only had 2 kinds -- Short Grain Brown Rice @ 3.79 for 2 lb. and California White Basmati @ 4.49 for 2 lb.

Thanks again. All corn avoiding posts are appreciated as I am fairly new at this.

Uncle Ben's plain ol' white rice is corn free too. I had it this morning for breakfast with brown sugar and apples. It's cheap and easy to find. I called the company and they assured me that it is corn free. Lundberg is good too but it's soooo expensive. :)

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
