How long can this last once open?


Should last indefinitely if stored correctly, infact basmati rice tastes even better the longer it is stored.
There are no delivery slots available for me at Tesco's even in 2 weeks time.

As the only review on the site says it's almost impossible getting this.
it was a week ago but managed to get it from local tesco a few days ago when they start limiting items per person.

Tesco Aldershot had plenty of bulk rice on Friday

Store correctly or you'll find added extra protein .

That’s scary. I have heard that rice poisoning can be one of the worse form of food poisoning.

I’m guessing that you store it in an airtight container.

Over 12 month if kept in a dry container
Anyone tried making pulao rice or biryani out of this?
there was in our tesco but wasn’t sure how they turn out.
so didn’t buy

Cooked rice which is then cooled and refridgerated immediately and reheated thoroughly within 24hrs wont give you food poisoning. Dry rice wont either.

Thank you for clearing that up. Good deal, and would work out so much cheaper than the 46p mi to wave packs, in Aldi. And taste way better.

There is trace of arsenic found in all rice - best to wash until the water runs clear then cook.
Also need to be thoroughly reheated if having leftovers.

Good to learn these things. I gave rice a quick wash in the past. Used to take ages. And then digging the bits out of the sieve. I’ll take my time in future. And not risk freezing cooked rice.

I think the "extra protein" that Wendy was referring to was from weevils, tiny insects that can get into rice, flour, cereals, biscuits, etc if they're not stored in an airtight container. Fortunately they're harmless, even if you accidentally eat some.

Add cloves of garlic this eliminates protein

Where are you located ?
Both Tesco's the one near Charlie brown roundabout and goodmayes had plenty of these in stock
sorry if you was in central london I could have pointed you to many local tescos where they have stock.

Keep it in a dark airtight container ideally glass jar, rice will keep 18-24 months.
More mature the rice better the flavour.
