It seems that I have been having a problem with Organic Brown Rice. I have tried different brands, cooking it different ways and I tried eating only freshly cooked, and it seems that if I have more than two servings per day I become hypersensitve to excito's in any food.

Since I stopped eating brown rice I can eat things that I could not eat before, like wheat crackers, eggs, wheat noodles and I even had a Subway turkey sandwhich recently with little or no reaction. Either of these in the past would have caused me problems and I wonder if the rice has more free glutamate in it than I ever suspected or it has something that somehow increases my sensitivity?

The updated daily topics list misplaces my posts! I am trying again to see if this works.

Thanks!

We do react to organic brown rice but I thought it was due to our corn allergy and rice being closely related to corn. I don't know what is going on with brown rice (we only buy organic) but we are definitely reacting to it. I have wondered about the GMO rice possibly contaminating the organic rice, but I guess it could also be some of those funky fertilizers they are allowed to use on organic. Since rice is grown in paddies, perhaps the problem is the same one I have with hydroponically grown vegetables.

Kristy, Thanks for the response. It is good to know that I am not the only one. I am not 100% positive it is the rice, but the evidence is mounting!

I often wonder about fertilizers too. If they can affect other produce similarly, then it will be even more difficult than it already is to idenitify a culprit.

This is an old thread...but...

I read that certain rice varieties (Basmati, Jasmine, etc.) are higher in salicylates than others (calrose, sushi, and some others).

I was considering a rice reaction--I had been eating organic brown basmati. Hope this helps.

SistineKid,

The link below recommends Calrose (California Rose sushi rice), Sungold and Sunbrown brown rices, and long grain rice, but claims that Basmati rice, jasmine rice, wild rice, black rice, and red rice all contain salicylates.

Thanks, Roy. I will be adjusting my rice selections--I had originally gone with brown (based on Deb A's recommendations), but now I'm going to be a bit more particular.
