    I refrigerate or freeze the rice after I cook it.

    • How long is rice good refrigerated anyway?

      • Me too. I pop the rice in the fridge and then use it for cold cereal! A little milk or cream, some melted butter, cinnamon, and maple syrup or honey. Nom nom nom!

          Well, rice I left out in the open lasted about four days before getting kind of funky. In the fridge I'd guess three times that.

            There are 2 things to remember about parboiled:
            - it contains 80% of the nutrients that were removed from normal white rice, and it does not contain the anti-nutrients of whole rice
            - it has a low glycemic index (not that we should care) which may indicate that its RS content is far from negligible.

            • For the past week I've been doing around 2 tbsp per night of potato starch before bed. My sleep has improved which is huge but the flatulence and bloating makes me question RS.

              When I started eating primal the decrease in gas intuitively told me it was good for my body. I'm getting the opposite effect and feeling since trying RS.

              Is this a temporary problem until my body adjust? What's your experiences.

              • I'd like to know the same thing as fatgoose. Ever since hitting 1 tbs, my stomach feels like it's full of frogs all day and I look a bit preggo even though that had initially gone away after starting primal. Is that temporary? Because digestive upset like that has never been an issue for me.

                • I'm back.

                  I'm completely off nightshades. Also cornstarch, including hi-maize. Also beans.

                  I can eat raw sweet potatoes, though I don't normally do it every day.

                  I'm not sure if I can eat tapioca. I have a yuca root I'm going to boil and serve tomorrow which will clarify that issue.

                  My go-to substitute for potatoes is malanga coco, which supposedly can be dried and ground into a flour that can substitute for wheat flour (sometimes, I guess). It's supposed to be the most hypoallergenic food in the world. Mashed with heavy cream, omg.

                  Kimchi is out, unless I make it myself without red pepper.

                  Suggestions?

                    My experience is that it is temporary. When I started raw PS, I tell you I was in fart hell. it did not help that I took some maltitol sweetened chocolate by accident, and it looked like raw PS mixed up with coconut milk nuked my gut.
                    But these nuclear accidents happened a couple of weeks after I started. The first 10 days or so, I only experienced the farting hell. My wife was getting so mad at me for "poisoning" our indoor atmosphere

                    Anyway, after I nuked my gut, I stopped completely for 2-3 days in order to normalize my poop, etc. Then, I consumed foods high in RS (RS2 like green bananas, and RS3 like stir-fried rice and cooled potatoes). I also increased my beans and onion consumption (I love onions but did not eat that much of them for a while, for some unknown reason). So anyway, I ramped up foods "rich" in RS. Then I resumed raw PS sup mixed in water only early in morning and before bedtime. I experienced no bloating at all. I continued to eat RS rich foods and continued on raw PS sup (sometimes 2 x 3 or 4Tbsp / day) with no problem at all.

                    Throughout all this, I never stopped eating yogurt (I am a big fan of sheep milk based yogurt).

                    Lately, I ate stuff rich in inulin, oligofructose, and even the dreaded maltitol -> no problem.

                    So I would say that it takes a long period of adjustment with breaks here and then. I also suspect it takes a few nuclear episodes to eject the bad stuff ...

                    • ^^I would suggest reducing the potato starch a bit if you are JUST starting. Looking pregnant says to me that it's too much.

                      • Yesterday wasn't nearly as bad and the preggo look was gone, so I think I am just going to hold steady at the 1tbs for right now. I think it was worse on the few days when I added plantains which I have never had before in my life. And like I said it wasn't uncomfortable...I was just REALLY aware of a lot of activity going on in there lol!

                        • The first time I'd ever had a plaintain, I tried eating it like a banana.

                          Nope.

                          • Lol...I wouldn't even dare try that. These were used as a flour substitute in a pancake/flatbread recipe. Plantains/eggs are the basic ingredients.

                              Cut a green one in half, fry them, then squish them flat. Now you have 2 pieces of "bread"
