Hey everyone, quick question and probably a simple answer.

I was at Sam's Club the other day and noticed they had 25lb boxes of parboiled rice, and the "Use by" date is about 2 years.

What exactly is "parboiled" rice? If I repackage it in mylar with oxygen absorbers will it last longer?

It is rice that is steamed while still in the husk. It has more nutrition then regular rice.
It's the only rice I use for side dishes and stir fries but I'll use sticky rice for soups as it is slightly cheaper.
