Does anyone know if Uncle Ben's Ready Rice(long grain white) is gluten Free. I know the regular Uncle Ben's Long Grain White Rice says gluten free right on the box. When I checked the Ready Rice package it didn't say gluten-free. Ingredients are : Long grain white rice, sunflower oil, water, salt. Anyone have any thoughts on this. I love the convenience of microwaving the rice in just 90 seconds!

thanks-

Cali

PRECOOKED LONG GRAIN RICE; WATER; PRECOOKED WILD RICE; HYDROLYZED SOY/CORN/WHEAT PROTEIN; CANOLA OIL; SUNFLOWER OIL; VEGETABLES (GARLIC*, ONION*, PARSLEY*, SPINACH*, CELERY*, TOMATO*, CARROT*); SUGAR; AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT; SALT; ACETYLATED MONOGLYCERIDE; SPICES; DEXTROSE; SMOKE FLAVOR; NATURAL FLAVORS. *DRIED.

There are different varieties in the 90 second pouches - some flavored some plain. I have had a couple of them and experienced slight reactions to the brown rice. For me, the plain white rice in the 90 second pouch was fine.

If you have a Trader Joe's near you, you can get frozen cooked rice (brown or white) that is *nothing* but rice that you can heat in the microwave (granted, it takes 150 seconds, not 90...).

I was just asking about the Long Grain White Ready Rice. I know that some of the flavored ones have obvious wheat in the ingredients.

Yep and thats the one I got the ingredients from ..

Says wheat in the ingredients, so cant be safe. Unless you ment this one

If so it looks it might be safe, but with out calling them I couuld not commennt beyond that.

I'm on a healing diet that does not allow rice. I also do not microwave much now due to the enzimes(sp) that say microwaving distroys. I need all of those I can get. LindaLee

I love the flavored spanish style rice. It is great for a quick mexican dinner. However, it is one of the few that seem to be gluten-free.
