Editor's Notes

October 25, 2018:

Some brands, like Thai Orchid, Nishiki, and Uncle Ben's, are very well known for flavor and ease of prep. If you can find bulk quantities of lesser-known varieties like black (well, actually purple) or germinated brown rice, then you know you're adding more than just starch to your diet. Any whole-grain rice should last about a month after the best-by date, but white rice should be be okay for another 2-3 decades.
