Tips

  • Due to the high oil content of brown rice, pantry storage will cause it to spoil relatively quickly and is not recommended unless the entire package is going to be used within a few weeks.
  • Once package is opened, refrigerate or freeze brown rice in a sealed airtight container or place original package in a heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only - foods kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
