Uncle Ben's Ready Rice
1 1

15 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anyone know if the original long grain ready rice is safe? The ingredients say preecooked long grain rice, water, canola oil, and acetylated monoglyerceride. It's the acetylated which I've never heard of before. And also, I think I may have heard someone say something about this type of rice before.

Thanks,

Sara

Oh no....not with the canola oil....just had that experience tonight and I never have any luck with canola oil with my celiac. My suggestion, by a small rice cooker, so you can keep rice on all day....then you scoop out what ever you want put it in a pan with some non hydrogenated oil....and go to town and add some all natural chicken (that which has not been fed antibiotics or had preservatives put on it by the store)

Other might say no.....but I have no luck with anything really packaged unless its raw foodws or natural...to me any of these oils are iffy especially in anything "instant"

I was just on the uncle Ben's website...

here is what it says....and I am certain the canola is either expeller pressed or hydrogentated...and the wheat protein....

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.

I would avoid it.....and cook it from scratch...

Canola oil is actually quite healthy for you. It's one of the healthiest cooking oils out there.

In 1974, rapeseed varieties with a low erucic content were introduced. Scientists had found a way to replace almost all of rapeseed's erucic acid with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fatty acid. (This change was accomplished through the cross-breeding of plants, not by the techniques commonly referred to as "genetic engineering.") By 1978, all Canadian rapeseed produced for food use contained less than 2% erucic acid. The Canadian seed oil industry rechristened the product "canola oil" (Canadian oil) in 1978 in an attempt to distance the product from negative associations with the word "rape." Canola was introduced to American consumers in 1986. By 1990, erucic acid levels in canola oil ranged from 0.5% to 1.0%, in compliance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards.

This light, tasteless oil's popularity is due to the structure of its fats. It is lower in saturated fat (about 6%) than any other oil. Compare this to the high saturated fat content of peanut oil (about 18%) and palm oil (at an incredibly high 79%). It also contains more cholesterol-balancing monounsaturated fat than any oil except olive oil and has the distinction of containing Omega-3 fatty acids, a polyunsaturated fat reputed to not only lower both cholesterol and triglycerides, but also to contribute to brain growth and development.

Certainly better for you than garden variety vegetable oil.

Canola oil is not a natural food for humans. Liquid vegetable oils have been newly introduced into the human diet since the start of the industrial age, and are nothing like what we evolved on.

I have the same feelings.

Everytime some new wonder product is pushed it almost always seems to have studies 10 yrs later with negative effects.

Scientists had found a way to replace almost all of rapeseed's erucic acid with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fatty acid.

Yes just as generations of agriculture changed wild grasses into high gluten wheats...

However as I have said before "there is no such thing as the healthy diet"

Every last thing you consume had good and bad... too much water can kill you, extreme but for the pirpose of the point.

Parmesan cheese (recently mentoined with eKatherine) has tremendous amounts of vitamins and minerals ... the real stuff has diary from controlled pastures and the cows are checked to be healthy naturally low in fat and loads of other benefits AND a heck of a lot of casein. the highest of any cheese by weight.

So what is good for one is not good for another!

back on the original topic: pre-cooked rice is unnatural, it needs things added and chance is those additives are probably determental .....

I live on the whole brown rice 90 second bags from Uncle Ben's and have yet to get sick from it,

I realise you don't mean that literally but obviously if you did that is not a healthy diet either.

Which is worse, pre-cooked 90 sec brown rice or proper natural but dehusked white rice?

I dunno......

The answer is probably natural brown rice but ....

Uncle Ben's - Per customer representative in June, 2005, the following UNCLE BEN'S Brand Products are gluten free (free from wheat, rye, oats, and barley):

* Uncle Bens Original Converted Brand Rice

* Uncle Bens Instant Rice

* Uncle Bens Whole Grain Brown Rice

* Uncle Bens Instant Brown Rice

* Uncle Bens Boil-in-Bag Rice

* Uncle Bens Long Grain and Wild Rice (discard seasoning packet)

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Original Long Grain

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Whole Grain Brown

* Uncle Bens Ready Rice Spanish Rice

Minute Rice and Uncle Ben's are also now owned by Kraft.

The nutritional content of this precooked proccessed stuff is pretty suspect though. My rice cooker is my best friend. You can get them for about twenty bucks, pretty much anywhere. Target, Kmart, walmart, etc.

In my opinion, its actually even easier than making Uncle Bens.

Add water, add rice, turn on, walk away, come back, eat. All you need is counter space.

I eat the quick rice with few problems.

For some reason though, basmati rice bothers me.

It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".

    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
