    Hey all I got a 25lb bag of Uncle Ben's Brown Rice for $18.99. Is this a good deal?

    Uncle Ben's............

    Just me, but I would never touch that stuff. I'm sure the brown rice is fine though. :P I'm Asian. Grew up on high quality sushi rice.

    All the asian rice I have seen at the store is white rice. That is not good compared to brown rice. I would like to find bulk black rice. I have heard/read that its even better for you then brown, but I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it.

    Yup, alas, most asian rice is white rice unfortunately. I've personally never seen black rice, but ya, I can imagine it would be expensive.

    I've seen black lentils but not black rice...

    Ok, so Asian people have more insight on rice... as an american does that mean i have more insight on Doughnuts? or maybe it's hamburgers and french fries? I have translated this post into the American version...

    Just me, but I would never touch that Hostess stuff. I'm sure the mini crumb variety is fine... :P I'm fat and white. Grew up on Hot, Fresh glazed twists from the local doughnut shop...
    Are you kidding me????

    Lol, oh I'm sure that it tastes good and is nurtritious. I guess I just have always associated the name with their instant white rice and developed an opinion of the company, that I just can't shake.

    Well my 25lb bag of UB brown rice is exactly what I was looking for. IMO its quality, and I love the quantity and cheap price. It doesn't break my bank and 25lbs is going to last me a while

    Well instant or quick rice is higher in GI than the slow-cooking long grain type...

    Peace.

    You mean wild rice? I mix 1 cup wild rice to 2 cups brown rice.
