$8/lb is way too much for something that will be mixed with dirt in the garden, no, not for moonshining!

I just found 10 lbs bag of rice hulls on Amazon for $28 + shipping, and that price is still ridiculous when rice is only 75 cents/lb.

ď... that price is still ridiculous when rice is only 75 cents/lbĒ

I have no idea what would be considered a reasonable price for rice hulls but I imagine it takes much more than 1 lb of rice to get 1 lb of hulls.

50lb bale $10 or $9 for three or more.

$1.49 lb free shipping W/$45 purchase.

In most Asia countries rice hull has no commercial values.

Back in the bad old days it's.... free. The poor use rice hulls for cooking fuel, and farmers use it for livestock bedding. I remember my Grandma also used rice hulls to preserve chicken, duck, and quail eggs.

Now it's like 5 cents per kilogram ~ 2.3 cents per pound. Still cheap cooking fuel for the poor, cheap bedding for farm animals, cheap material for making "century eggs" -- nutritional rich food that will last for months and months.

1,000 lbs of dry paddy yields 600 lbs of milled rice, 140 lbs of bran, and 260 lbs rice husk.

So, 8.33 lbs of dry paddy = 2.3 lbs of milled rice = 1 lb of rice hulls.

Now it's like 5 cents per kilogram ~ 2.7 cents per pound. SNIP


Isnít that the way it always goes?

I think they used to throw away gasoline for the first few decades but once the car was invented it became a valuable product.

Good luck with your project, I hope you can find it at a low enough price to make it viable.

Yup. Rice hulls were free forever until they "invented" rice hull pellets!

Thank you. I am heading to the feed store. Hopefully they have rice hulls in 10 lb bags with better price.

I buy them at the feed store. Maybe 10.00 per 50# bag. I use them for mulch. They last a long time
