  • Minute Rice

    This a bit of a question and a rant, everytime I go to any grociery store, or walmart or what have you, I see all kinds of minute rice, 5 min, 1 min and shit like that, then I work my way down to the section I like, the brown rice. Why the hell is there no minute brown rice?, the only problem I have with brown rice is its not convient to cook always, it take almost 2x the amount of time to cook from regular long grain white rice, and I just don't understand why we can come out with instant white rice all the time for quick fixes, but no brown rice. :chair:

    So does this actually exist or is it a dream I will forever have everytime I lift my spoonful of brown rice. :dcchomp:

    Uncle Ben's my friend. Comes in an orange bag, just tear the top, nuke it for 90 seconds, pour, and eat. Comes in white, long grain, spanish, chicken, and yes, brown. It's fairly new however, so I've found that not all stores carry it.

      well, here in IL we have minute brown rice, i knwo that the longer you cook rice i think the lower the GI...soooo if you are eating br rice for the low GI value, you would lose that with the min rice. Rice lasts bout 4-5 days cooked in the fridge, why not make a big batch of it, u can even sperate the ammounts you want into seperate containers.
      Thats just whjat i have heard bout the quick cook rice...besides its not that great, the brown minute rice...your not missing much!

        Ya I've been doing that, just some sundays I just run out of time to do my big cook out, lol

        And you are correct on the minute rice being higher in GI, that is true and I never thought about that till now.

        But generally I just like brown rice better then white for overall taste and texture.

        oh well :dcchomp:

        thanks

          well not sure on the quick rice, BUT i do know that while extra long grain or wild rice has only 1 point more than brown on the GI...AND sounds stupid, but white rice bloats me MUCH less than brown.

                  Aren't I glad you're here? Never thought about the bloating thing and didn't ever check on the GI thing. Thanks!

                      How about getting a rice cooker. I have one that also has a "warmer" as a feature and it's awesome! Hot rice all day long. It'll also keep on warmer for a few days. PLUS...rice cooks in like 20 mins!

                        you are correct about minute rice effecting the glycemic index of rice. just used the 20-40 minute stuff and make a huge bowl full.
