    Here's one explanation as to why one might freeze dry rice. I've never frozen rice myself, but not afraid of trying something new!

    Checked it out. Yes, you can freeze those little suckers & if you do it right they can last up to 18 months in the freezer. So, THEY say. I’ve had rice last that long out of the freezer, albeit in a tight container so those Lil bugs don’t git at em. Says yer suppose to lay em out on a cookie sheet & cool em down & then put em in freezer bags or the like. Seems like a lotta work.

    For long term storage any rice or wheat etc with the whole grain will last a lot longer than in a pantry, but it has to be sealed well and protected from moisture and freeze-thaw cycling.

    No need bbqLuv as it appears they only have a few days of thaw in that particular latitude.

    Not sure what the issue, in general, with freezing cooked rice. There are lots of frozen rice products on the market. Trader Joe’s sells a Jasmine rice frozen that we use all the time. My wife will freeze anything, and leftover rice has certainly made it in there many times. I guessing some form of contamination, but don’t know enough to call that a certainty.

    Same here Bkhuna . We have a small under cabinet fridge just stuffed with their grits, corn meal, and other products.

    Yeah I don't think this is meant to be frozen. There is moisture and when frozen that swells. Doubt it is bad just not worth eating.

    I've never heard of freezing dried rice or dried beans. They just go in the pantry. I am with others, and wonder if there was some level of moisture that caused issues due to the daily defrost cycle in a frost free freezer.

    Freezer bag is a rather ambiguous term, no doubt...room fer discussion, here...

    But...

    If in th original pkg, and / or / inserted into a 'freezer bag', it really shouldn't be absorbin anything, should it?

    I git my rice dried, an have never frozen it, so I consider myself unqualified to testify as to why this here particular phenomenon occurred...

    Donw - I've been an avid fan of Geechie Boy/Marsh Hen for years. There are 5 types of grits I buy from them as well as Sea Island beans and corn meal.

    We're planning a trip to Charleston over the Christmas holiday and their store is on our "to do" list.

    Putting rice in the freezer may be against the grain. I'm wondering if the rice itself expanded, as in absorbed moisture during the frost-free cycles, or fermentation process occurred and giving off-gas.
