(Limit 3 buckets per customer order)
Note: Wheatland’s rice is grown in Arkansas, USA (not in Utah or Idaho, as are most of our foods).
Rice is an excellent side dish or addition to casseroles, soups, etc. It is a good source of thiamine and folate and makes an essential addition to any food storage supply.
White rice is milled rice that has had its husk, bran, and germ removed. This alters the flavor, texture and appearance of the rice and helps prevent spoilage and extend its storage life. After milling, the rice is polished, resulting in a seed with a bright, white, shiny appearance.
(Please Note: This product is not grown in Idaho or Utah.)
FOOD STORAGE RECOMMENDATION: 50 lbs. of Rice per year/per adult. (This amount is based on the recommendations listed in the LDS Church’s Home Production and Storage manual. These figures are recommendations, and are basic year supply minimums only. You will need to choose the best options and foods you should store for your family.) Remember, for gluten-intolerant individuals, Rice and Oat Groats make wonderful flour and you should plan on much more for flour production). Our 4-gallon heavy-duty stackable square buckets are strongly recommended for storage purposes!! They are lined with air-tight, RE-SEALABLE* Mylar bags and have Oxygen Pack inserts to keep them fresh, delicious, and pest-free for 25+ years!
AVAILABLE IN: 4 gallon long-term storage Mylar-lined bucket (approx. 20 lbs.)
If you have any questions please call and we will be so happy to help!
*Re-Sealable (so… use it up as you go!)
The Mylar is heat-sealed (which makes the bag re-sealable). The sealed Mylar will stay air-tight if it’s not punctured. Because it is re-sealable you can snip a corner off the bag, pour out as much product as you’ll use in the next few months, then quickly* re-seal the Mylar and send your food back into long-term storage. The oxygen pack should continue to do its job as long as you re-seal the Mylar as quickly as possible. IMPORTANT: If your bag is left open for more than 30 minutes, you will want to toss in a new oxygen pack before re-sealing to ensure long-term freshness. If you have opened and re-sealed multiple times, and want to store the remainder for many years, you will want to put in a new oxygen pack.
