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

    • Looking for advice and also to help those undergoing testing. I went to my general practitioner back in August with nausea, bloating, diarrhea, migraines, sluggishness, and a feeling of general unwellness. I was eating a gluten diet at the time. My doc ordered the dual antigen screen- it came back positive for celiac. He set up an appointment for me with a specialist. I called the specialist and they could get me in 8 weeks later. I asked the specialist if I went gluten free is this would affect any testing. They said “no” that I was in a gluten diet for so long I would be fine. However, 8 weeks later, the blood test showed no celiac- my results were normal after 8 weeks on a gluten free diet. I felt great, for me the turnaround was almost immediate- in a week or 2 I felt amazing. But that didn’t help with getting accurate results (mostly wanted to rule out another autoimmune disorder). I then went on gluten for 7 weeks (I ate a lot of gluten- like at least a bagel a day and much more on some days- I wasn’t messing around, I wanted an accurate diagnosis)and repeated the blood test at 7 weeks. It came back a very weak positive for deamidated gliadin abs iGg. I then underwent a endoscopy because the doc said that number, although positive, was not high enough to go off of. The endoscopy came back normal- however, the doc noted that higher levels of antibodies were found but not in the “abnormal range.” So, they were present, just not in crazy levels. I then kept eating gluten- I should note my doctors SUCK (could do a whole other post just on this- I have been my own doctor pretty much). I just took another blood test at 3 months eating gluten. My levels are now SUPER high for deamidated Gliadin abs IgG. The doc is confident I have celiac. Question is- my doc is so bad, I wanted to check here to make sure that it indicates celiac. I also wanted to help others as I know there’s lots of conflicting information on how long to do a gluten Challenge. For me, it took 3 months. My gut tells me I am early stage celiac- I don’t have full blown damage yet, but if I keep eating it I am sure it will do some damage. Just wanted to highlight this as if your case isn’t super bad yet, you may have to eat gluten longer- everyone is different. Any advice on my results would be awesome!
    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.
