Safe Brands Of Rice?

Shouldn't all rice be okay, if it's not one of those shelf-stable flavored mixes? I've used whatever was on sale at the grocery store and never had a problem. Have I just dodged a bullet?

Rice in itself is naturally gluten free. Check the labels of Rice with seasonings.

well, I was at the store and most of the uncle ben's stuff I read didn't look ok, maybe I was just looking at the seasoned ones? Then I started worrying that Rice was processed with wheat (like oat) if not that is great!

Yeah, I never buy the seasoned stuff. This is just me, but shelf-stable meals-in-a-box freak me out. I've bought Uncle Ben's regular, non-seasoned, long-cooking rice and been fine, and also Mahatma. I haven't heard about rice being processed with wheat like oats are.

Plain rice is all gluten-free. For seasoned ones, read the ingredients or call.

I am using a boxed, pre boiled, quick rice of a generic brand for the dog's food because one box makes the right size pot full of rice I need for the other ingredients.

Every time I put it in the pot and it starts to simmer, a little grain or two of something else comes to the top, like a weed seed or a lentil, and I spoon it out. And I've used lots of boxes of it.

If I were going to be using it, I'd pour it in a bowl first and check it over. So far I haven't seen anything that looks like a wheat kernel, and I hope I don't.

For us, we just use bagged rice from California. And do have a look at it before cooking, just in case.

For rice products, Lundberg makes things that are marked gluten free, such as their rice cakes.

HI all,

I just wanted to say thanks for the reassurance about plain rice. Sometimes it is hard that it is my 3 yo that is celiac I am worried something may be upsetting her tummy and I won't know. I try to for the most part buy products that state gluten free so I don't have to worry about her.

Thanks!
