I think maybe around 10 in that yellow wire bin when I left. It was located near the Entertainment/Electrical department. They also had some dishwasher stuff on clearance (Rinse-aid/Tablets etc.). Don't know if these things would have also been dotted around elsewhere in the store

How long do you think it will take if I eat it by the grain! X)

It was £13 on Monday. I don't know how much it is today.

Depends on your appetite & how fast you peck! I would say a day or two

If you eat a lot of rice it doesn't take that long to get through 10kg really. Make sure you put it in the freezer for a few days though if you're not going to use it for a while.

freezing raw rice ? never heard of it.

It's fine, as long as the bag is airtight. In fact, it's quite common to freeze rice as it will stop any weevil eggs from hatching. You only need to put it in the freezer for a few days.

I didn't know such a problem with weevils existed until someone mentioned it on this website.

What are you talking about??? No one has ever freezed dry rice. Most Asian people buy rice in bulk & keep it in a dry place because the longer the rice stays dry the better the quality of rice when cooked.

No one has ever freezed rice? I can assure you, I have frozen rice for almost half a year now. :-) Just google, 'freeze rice' + weevils . :-)

Dried rice goes through a treatment process and this is pretty good but is not 100% effective. Thus, it's quite possible to get rice weevils.

Here's a quote from wikipedia,

Control[edit] Rice weevils in all stages of development can be killed by … Control[edit] Rice weevils in all stages of development can be killed by freezing infected food below -17.7 °C (0 °F) for a period of three days, or heating to 60 °C (140 °F) for a period of 15 minutes.[4]

agreed.

you do not need to freeze these even if you are not going to use these for few years.
they would get even better when cooked as old.
aged basmati rice are preferred quality.

If you buy large sacks of flour, oats, or rice at warehouse clubs you … If you buy large sacks of flour, oats, or rice at warehouse clubs you should be on guard for weevils. Weevils are small beetles that feed on whole and processed grains, nuts, and seeds. Commodity grains are often treated with diatomaceous earth to kill the pests, which works well but can't get all of them. An easy way to surely kill any potential weevils in your foods is to freeze the the entire package for two days.Pest control expert Peder Hoyum recommends freezing as it will kill any active weevils and their eggs so that you don't have any nasty surprises when you open that 15lb bag of awesome sushi rice you bought on Amazon. (ask me how I know) This is a good method to use on anything you buy in bulk, but is overkill to use on each box of pancake mix or oatmeal, as those products will most likely be consumed before any existing weevil eggs hatch.It's not fun to think about the pests that could potentially be in our food, but it is much better to eliminate that concern up front for free than to have to throw away costly bulk foods later.

Put simply if you're going to buy huge sacks of rice that you don't think you'll use up or even open for a while, it's best to be on the safe side and freeze the rice for a few days. It doesn't affect the quality of the rice believe me and the last thing you want is to throw away a 10kg bag of rice because you got upset when you saw something moving in it.

Whenever I buy a big bag of rice, I put it in the freezer for 3 days. It's just good practice. You can also do the same with flour too but I think it's more important that it's airtight in that case.

So when you've taken your rice out of the freezer, do you then go about seperating the frozen weevils from the grains of rice or do you just boil 'em up and chow down on those critters ? X)

I've been eating rice all my life (nearly 40 now) and never had a problem storing it and eating it. Even in the sub tropics where bugs are everywhere no one ever freezes rice. If you are unaware rice is polished and processed by companies so that the bugs you are talking about don't appear. Sounds like you've just discovered what rice is and googled it before eating!

Lots of people freeze rice. Get over it

The treatment doesn't always kill all the eggs, it's not a perfect process. The only way to be sure is to freeze the rice or heat it up above 60 degrees.

You may have been fortunate but people do lose bags of rice to weevila. You'll probably have a few crawling around your cupboards or in storage containera somewhere. I've had both in the past, one contajner stored rice as have a few friends of mine. I didn't know what they were at first so took them for analysis.

in India they use boric acid tablets or powder as they stock up for the year. then common practice in Asians is to wash all things before cooking except flour. so you'd wash your rice a minimum of 3 times any daals you're using etc.

If you see something crawling in your rice then just wash it before you cook it it'll get rid of the bugs too. only had bugs in my rice once didn't chuck them away. would never freeze as who the heck has that much space in their freezer to shove a 10kg bag in there?

None in Burnage. Store specific for sure..

For Yellow label like this in Tesco It is normally just a single store clearance. The temperature should not reach that high as only very limited people can get it.
