yes it is gluten free and certainly is a "quick fix' for meal making in a hurry.

However, have you considered trying brown rice? Brown rice is less processed and has more nutritionl benefits. higher fiber, lower glycemic index, more vitamin content...

I highly adocate the puchase of a rice steamer. It's an investment that will pay its worth back to you over time. My rice steamer cooks my rice to the perfect doneness and consistency every time. Plus it also steams vegetables wonderfully as well!

Since I am on the go, I make a batch of rice on the weekend, and after its cooled, store it in a tightly sealed plastic container in the fridge. It usually lasts me thru the work week, and all I have to do is microwave it briefly and voila! I have the perfect complement to my meal.

yes, you are very right. Before we got a rice steamer we used a brand of rice called Success, and you could get it in either white or brown. It was very convenint and came out nicely every time.

If you don't have a rice steamer this is definitely the way to go, as cooking the regular brown rice in a pan is a slow process and hard to get it just right ... (not too mushy or sticky)

It was when we got the rice steamer we stopped getting the instant varieties, as we liked the flavor much better and the rice steamer gets it right every time!

I too love my rice steamer. My MIL gave it to me. I can't imagine eating it any other way now! I do keep instant rice on hand for the times my husband cooks supper and it is easy and quick for him.

I have been using Uncle Ben's Natural Brown Rice for a while now (says gluten free on the box)..

Recently my husband and I have started using the Minute Rice Single servings that you can put in the microwave for a minute (little white cup). They come in Brown Rice, Wild Rice, White and Chicken Flavor (they say gluen free on the back). They come in really handy with busy schedules rather then waiting 20-30 minutes for the box rice. We still use the box rice but when we are in a hurry or stuck at work for lunch the single serving Minute Rices are great!

Edit: Oh... There is a $1 off coupon inside the box where if you buy two you get the $1 off... The cashier should let you tear one off of the ones you are buying to use it. It is on the top inside so if you peak in you can see it.

We only eat rice maybe once a month. So I just get rice boil-in-bags. Ten minutes is all it takes. For a while, there was a jasmine variety that was very good, but that seemed to disappear when there was the rice shortage and prices went up a few years ago.

best regards, lm

BTW, what's white and crawl's up your leg?

Uncle Ben's perverted rice! :D

    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks
