I'm currently searching for a brand of rice that is safe for even the most sensitive.

I saw posts on here from around 2009 (I believe) and was just curious what everyone ate without issues lately?

 Check Lundberg on that list, I do not eat carbs myself but I used to use that brand. They have all kinds of rice based meals and foods and gluten-free certifications last I checked.

Unfortunately I have a intolerance to oats so Lundberg bothers me. Thanks so much though.

???? Lundberg do not use oats in ANY of their products. check the grains section http://www.lundberg.com/products/grains/

I guess try lotus if it still bothers you.....you might be like me and all grains/carbs cause some kind of gut issues. I had to go paleo/keto.....thought for years it was just bad gut bacteria but ended up being another AI issues that reacted to carbs.

Hi :) 

I'm in the UK so brand recommendations probably no help to you, although we have Uncle Ben's over here which is fine to my knowledge. I have to say I approach rice on the assumption that it should be safe unless I hear otherwise, that may not be the best approach if as you say you're particularly sensitive and want to cover all the bases. The exception to this is the precooked rice you can find over here in pouches designed for the microwave. That can be a problem. 

If you have a brand you normally use or that's readily available you could try googling it to see if anyone has reported issues and of course contacting them directly to check with them. This forum is also worth searching in that way as over the years there's been many accounts from users of their experiences with different brands and products so you could try searching a brand name with them.

Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.

They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats. 

I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods. 

May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain. 

Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone

on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because

I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet. :( Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs)

So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely

different.

Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not.

There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it.

BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.   

OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.

You might check with Lundberg.  I don't think they actually grow oats.  I think they used oats to help the rice seeds  spread nicely when being seeded from an airplane.   Not sure if they still do.

But even if grown near oats  (rotation), wouldn't washing and sorting  your rice three times, yield a pretty clean rice prior to cooking?  We eat dried beans.  The same thing could happen with them, but I sort and wash.  

And eating rice causes you to drop your blood sugar?  Typically, if a diabetic, it can cause a steep rise  due to insulin resistance or the inability to produce insulin properly.  Are you tracking with a meter?  Has diabetes been ruled out?  

I hope you figure it out!

Bomba rice from Spain is supposedly grown in the mountains,  and low in arsenic.  I just tried some from tiende.com, no problems, but then I'm not sensitive to rice.

Have you tried Lundberg Organic Basmati? 

A friend is allergic to grass, and can't tolerate rice. She was told they are similar botanically.  If you haven't been tested for allergies, specifically food allergies,  you might try that.
