General Rice Info

Dry white rice is a good pantry storage item.

Short Term Rice Storage

Rice should be stored in tightly secured containers in a cool place; this prevents moisture and insect infestation. If you buy rice in bulk, freeze it for 3 days to kill any weevil or insect eggs. Transfer the contents into tightly secured jars, and store in a cool place.

Brown rice storage is very different than the white rice. Brown rice has oils that can quickly become rancid as they are oxidized. For best results, store brown rice in an airtight container in the refrigerator; it will keep for 6 months.

Store cooked rice in an airtight container in the refrigerator; it will hold for 4 to 7 days.

Rice Long Term Storage

When packaged properly, most white rice varieties can be stored for 30 years. For canning jars or foil pouches, place 1 oxygen absorbing packet into each container; for plastic buckets, place 1 ounce of dry ice per gallon capacity in the bottom. Fill jars to 95% capacity, foil pouches to 80%, and buckets to within 1 inch of the top. Seal the containers appropriately then store in a cool, dark and dry location off of the floor.
