How long can you store rice and what is the best way to store it? Does rice ever become unsafe to eat?
Thank you for your question! Uncooked rice should not become unsafe to eat. For best quality, dry rice should be eaten within 2 years (1 year for brown rice). It will be safe to eat for even longer if it is stored properly.
Rice storage tips
- Dry rice should be stored in an airtight container so that it doesn't absorb moisture or any odors from the air. A food-saver bag is a perfect way to store dry goods.
- You should check your pantry periodically for any infestation of pantry pests.
