    Bugs are good protien, eat ’em up

    Not for LTS, for short term (few months) it will. These films showed that just in buckets with sealed lids will fail.

    if i store it in the bags it comes in i get mine in 10 pound thick plastic bags will that work?

  4. cook it up and feed it to chickens or some other animal…

  5. In Oregon, they say that the worm is part of the fruit. Before eating unsprayed cherries, I was told to submerge the fruit in a bucket of water. The bugs float to the top and can be removed. The same might work for the rice in an emergency. If, in the middle of a volcanic winter, you open the rice and see those little bugs, think of them as protein and add a bit more spice to the cooking pot. These videos constitute an excellent survival handbook. Thank you for the effort.

    Yes,its nice and yellow now.Been in a sealed bag for over 6 years now.
    Mylar is the way to go if your gonna store for long term ,

    Have you tried vacuum sealing (seal a meal etc.) rice for long term storage and did it work?

  8. CommanderUTube | May 16, 2010 at 5:12 am |

    Thanks. That’s useful info.

    Over time, the buckets aren’t 100% air tight. There may have also been bugs already there when it was bought (eggs) and with plenty of air etc over time they hatched.That is why with any LTS you should use mylar bags and o2 absorbers.

    Where did the bugs come from if the container was sealed?

  11. aaahhhhaaaahhhh | May 16, 2010 at 7:34 am |

    zombies? how bout warewolfs and vampires

  12. Thanks for your reply, Bob. I’ll look into good quality food grade mylar bags.

  13. delta69alpha | May 16, 2010 at 8:31 am |

    MM, If that was the case then why would such companies such as EE,Walton,honeyville etc all use them?
    There are different grades if mylar, some food grade ,some not food grade.
    It would also be wise to see the time frame it takes for a mylar bag to break down into formaldehyde.If i recall its a VERY long time.

  14. Hi Bob, I really love your videos. On one particular food storage web site, they warn against using mylar bags. They say that the mylar breaks down into formaldehyde after awhile. I’m of two minds regarding the mylar, but I don’t want my food to get buggy. Have you heard anything about this? Thanks!

    How did the bugs get in there?

  16. gijoegotogo | May 16, 2010 at 9:53 am |

    i have a theory , i live in Alabama and an out side metal shed will easly get to over 200 degrees inside temp, that high of temp killed the bugs and/or eggs. since the inside temp of your home never got hot enough to kill the eggs =bugs.

  17. delta69alpha | May 16, 2010 at 10:26 am |

    No, the buckets are not bug proof. The bug eggs are already in the grains or they will find a way in over time . The rice shown was in buckets with decent seals and still got bugs.

  18. delta69alpha | May 16, 2010 at 11:23 am |

    The rice showed in this line of movies was not frozen. The batch that we ran through the freeze movies was for frozen for 3-4 days and it killed all the bugs.

  19. TheCassandraReview | May 16, 2010 at 11:52 am |

    I just posted a video to you what happened to my 1999 rice. I inspected everything and didn’t find any bugs. In fact I opened a pack to check to see your termite bug but not there.

    I don’t know if the freezing helped.. I can’t for the life of me remember the freeze time I think it was 72 hours.

    I got discoloration as well, If I have to trade or give away rice I’m using this one 1st.

  20. If stored in buckets will i be fine? Like if the buckets are bug proof? I mean will the bugs just appear in there? Or do they migrate in? thanks

  21. Great vid. You have a great public service. Thanks.

  22. hey no problem w/ bugs – extra protien!
    just gotta cook em up.

  23. don’t fret it too much. put the rice in a cast iron pot or dutch oven with sawdust and heat it slowly on hot coals for about an hour and then re-seal in a container. when ready to use, just make sure you make yourself a sifting screen and sift out the sawdust. and BINGO, good to go. i got this info from my grandpa that grew up in the depression.

  24. good grief bugs! lmao. I love your guys’ videos. Thanks for making them.
