I discovered Cahokia Rice and immediately noticed a difference. Cahokia rice tastes 'fresh'. This difference can be compared to eating fresh vegetables compared with canned, fresh is always better!
Great flavor and texture. Bought bulk. Arrived quickly and in good condition. Billing was linked to a NY number, which was a bit odd. Hoping for cotton sack in the future.
I am using Cahokia Brown rice for the past few months, we all liked the texture, aroma and taste.
I love this rice and I am so glad it’s not imported from overseas. The flavor and texture make it some of the best rice I have bought.
Initially I was intrigued to find a rice grown in Illinois. I was pleased with the quality and flavor, and even more so when I understood how it was bred (NOT genetically modified) to be significantly higher in protein and have a lower glycemic index. I applaud the farmer's concern for the land and that it's locally grown. Even the packing slip had a "thank you," hand written from "the farmer's wife!" Thank you, Cahokia Rice!
wonderful flavor, cooks up fast, couldn't ask for a better price. only rice i will buy from now on,
Simple website. Prompt and accurate order handling. Great for people with carbohydrate intolerance or limited tolerance.
AND IT TASTES BETTER THAN REGULAR MILLED WHITE RICE!
Note to new consumers: if cooked in a double boiler setup (my preference for cooking rice), use a little less water (you'll have to experiment) than the written instructions call for or the rice will be soupy on the bottom.
We first bought it for the protein content, but will be ordering it again for the delicious flavor.
Best brown rice I have eaten / cooked. I'm a life long rice eater ( 60 years). I soak for 20 mins....drop a bit of sesame oil for added flavor.
I really like the brown rice and decided to try the white rice because a few of my recipes call for white rice. I used my rice cooker and it came out perfect. The lower glycemic index due to the higher protein of Cahokia's rice originally caught my attention because I did not want to give up rice completely in my diet. Excellent product.
I made a mistake and ordered the 25 lbs. bag... I'm so glad I did. This was the silver bullet I was looking for. It is the perfect supplement to my diet.
We love Cahokia rice! It tastes great and we love the nutritional advantages! We used to buy it at a local co-op, but there wasn’t always enough when I needed it, I’m so grateful it’s so easy to order and have delivered to our house!
I am not a fan of brown rice because I can’t never cook it right but this rice cooks so good in the microwave and taste so good, you don’t have to fix it up with added ingredients to make it taste good like other rice. It’s good all on its own. So glad I found this company!
I am so happy I found this company, so happy to be eating rice grown in the USA! This rice taste so good and the extra protein is a big plus. From now on this is my rice of choice.
We have always used exclusively Jasmine and Basmati rices in our home, but after sampling the Cahokia white rice, everybody agrees that it is superior in every way. We are stocking up and will be relying on this rice for our Jollof and other staples going forward. Our 7 takes it to school in an insulated container for his lunch almost every day. The added protein is of course a welcome bonus, but we favor this rice for its texture and flavor. It also cooks up great in the microwave, which is a real time-saver on busy weekdays.
We first purchased this rice from a St Louis grocery store while in town for a friend's wedding. Had NO idea that my home state grew rice so bought quite a bit to share with family members at Christmas time. They were stunned too but the best part is that we all love this rice, both the white and brown varieties. I ordered more when I ran out and this is my second order which again will be shared with family. This is excellent quality rice - all of us use it in different meals and preparations and Cahokia rice works for all! I agree with the many other comments here that it is the complete package: excellent quality, texture and taste, high protein, etc. Thank you for the wonderful product.

I sought out Cahokia Brown Rice for the higher protein and lower glycemic index. I enjoy it for the great texture and flavor. The fiber and natural nutrition are an added plus.
I rinsed and soaked 2 cups of rice and soaked it for 10 minutes. I added the rice, two cups of water and a teaspoon of low sodium Better Than Bullion. I cooked it for 20 minutes on high pressure and did a Natural Release. This is literally the best rice I have ever had. The texture and flavor and the fact that it’s high protein makes it a winner. I am buying more and you should too.
