I’m always looking for quality foods. This brown rice is tasty and has excellent protein.
Purchased our first units of Cahokia rice a few weeks ago. Had rice tonight w dinner tonight. Cooked up perfectly and had a silky smooth texture. Delicious!
I tried the brown rice which looked like long grain rice and cooked it in my rice cooker like normal. It seemed to swell more than regular rice after cooking so I decrease the amount of water by 2 oz. for 2 rice cooker sized cups as I like my rice a bit firmer. I'm still tinkering with it as I just received it. It is a healthier substitute for regular rice without sacrificing taste or texture. I would really like a 10 lb. bag to be offered as 2 lbs. is too small (besides being expensive) and 25 lbs. is too large. I was surprised and happy to find this existed as I have to watch my Hgb A1C and want to avoid becoming diabetic and I do love my rice. Received my order in a timely manner and in good condition. Loved the free shipping and will buy again.
In the US, farm-to-plate distance in the US generally exceeds 1500 miles -- rice in particular, much farther.This rice comes to us direct from the farmer, a distance of less than 1300 miles. (Alas! rice isn't farmed on a large scale in Massachusetts.) The rice has great flavor and texture -- always cooks up nicely. Highly recommend.
With a diabetic husband, I’m always looking for healthy, high protein side dishes. I love the taste and ease of cooking. Perfect for all my instant pot recipes. Really fast shipping too!
Cooks up nicely in a pressure cooker at 18 min w/ natural release. Little EVOO, salt and a couple garlic cloves, 2/1 water. Xlnt!
This has been my favorite rice because of flavor, mouth feel, and nutritional value. The company is reliable and shipping is very fast.
I prepared the Cahokia brown rice in a rice cooker. The taste and texture were excellent. I especially like that the protein is higher and the glycemic index is lower.
Really enjoy the Cahokia Rice, it cooks up wonderfully and tastes great. First found the rice at Village Market in Evanston, and was thrilled I could purchase the 20 pound bag online and also help the community food bank with additional rice. Keep up the great work, will definitely purchase again! Super fast delivery, too!
After cooking a few brown rice dishes now, the Cahokia rice is surprisingly light in color. But it is definitely not white rice. It has a lot of flavor. And it tastes fresh. This is now our favorite rice, and we will be ordering more.
This is naturally developed healthy rice, by scientists.
This gives a hope that Food as Medicine for better life is possible , again !
Thank you for the work you have put into making this rice available, Cahokia farmers. I have been delighted by the rice itself, the purchasing experience, and everything I have read about Cahokia rice. It has transformed my opinion of rice. I plan to purchase it regularly.
Great product, ships promptly, nicely packaged. Love the food bank donations. LOVE that it is grown in Illinois with respect to the native land.
This is the finest rice I've ever had and so after 4 months and nearly 25 lbs eaten with friends and family, I'm buying 25 lbs more! The rice is low glycemic, hearty, and still fluffy. Also the packing slip said "have a rice day!" How can I resist this rice?
After searching several brands, mostly parboiled options, I was very happy to find Cahokia. Upon receiving and trying their brown rice I was pleased and grateful to have made contact with a great company. The product is true to its description and promise. I even got a handwritten note of thanks for my purchase, which I thought was a lovely gesture. I have nothing but high praises for the product and professionalism.
My husband has digestion problems and this suits his system just fine. I cook up enough for a few meals at a time. He eats it for breakfast and we sometimes use it instead of potatoes with our dinner meals.
Normally, I don't even like brown rice. I eat it because it's supposed to be better for me. But this rice, I eat because I want to and not because I need to eat it for my health.
We absolutely love this rice. It's the best we've ever had. This is the only rice I'll buy from now on.
