You can buy aged rice, intentionally made aged rice left open to the air in wicker baskets for up to 10 years, in any good ethnic foods store. Unintentionally aged rice has been eaten safely long past that.

If it's not green, smells like mildewed crap, or have bugs in it, it's pretty much safe to eat.

God bless.

I've seen ALOT of people not worry about the bugs either. You soak it in water let the bugs float and drain them off. Course the bugs are just protein too!

I had a 50# bag of calrose rice I purchased somewhere between 1997-99 (wife and I cannot agree on the year) used some of it and it got pushed to the back of the pantry and forgotten until last year! No Mylar or O2 absorbers it was in the original paper sack found it and used it up it tasted like rice couldn't tell the difference between it and fresh from the store

I might make a rice mattress. Just line it with plastic and stuff if up. Makes better use of space and makes me want to eat less.

We eat a lot of rice in Hawaii.

I store atleast 5 to 6 20lb. bags at a time in the original bag and in sealed 5 gal buckets in a cool, dry place.

Rotate.

Only once had a problem with bugs. probably in the bag in the first place.

Rice goes a long way...stock up

According to "Foods that last forever", all rice (except brown rice) will last forever, having no shelf life) if stored properly.

This should be a clue as to the accuracy of the article:
Quote:
The shelf life of rice depends on a variety of factors, such as the “sell by date,”
The "sell by date" has no effect on longevity whatsoever. Rice from the same field, packaged by two seperate companies, may have different "sell by" dates. All those dates are is an arbitrary number chosen by the packager.

Properly packaged, white rice can be stored nearly indefinately. Heck, it'll last for a few years just sitting in the pantry.

I have part of a box of parboiled white rice I bought in 2006 I'm still using. It's just been kept in a large tupperware container. You can't tell it wasn't purchased yesterday.

If you keep it clean and dry, it lasts indefinitely. Great simple energy source, and, served with beans (most of which also have very long shelf lives), makes a complete protein.
