View Full Version : Can rice be eaten raw?

Someone told me wild rice can be spouted.
Any wild rice or only the solid black colored rice?
Then I read in a Cousen's book that wild rice isn't really raw...supposedly when people think they are sprouting it they are in actuality just "splitting" it.

Wild rice of any kind can be eaten raw and I've even eaten regular brown rice raw. Brown rice requires a lot of chewing, but wild rice will get pretty soft. You can also make raw rice milk for yourself out of sprouted rice.

I never had ANY of the rice I soaked sprout into a plant - so I avoid it. Just my experience.

I have had certain rices sprout into serious plants green. Generally the brownish black wild rice you see has been toasted, maybe gives the illusion of sprouting by puffing out when soaked. However there are rices availabe, and you can sprout them and make a nice rice salad and other things, however, it is quite chewy.
If you use the banana to search hopefully you can find some past discussions. I think the company was Lundberg for the rice, but not all their rices, just specific ones.

Has anyone softened up Jasmine rice by soaking? I tried this week, but it didn't work. Can it be done?? :confused:
