Just wondering how long it takes for organic rice to turn rancid in the cupboard and if it can be refrigerated.

Are you talking about uncooked or cooked rice? Cooked rice freezes really well. When I have some extra time for cooking I try and cook up a big batch of brown rice and freeze in individual portions for days when I'm pressed for time.<br><br><br><br>
If you are wondering about raw rice, I'm not sure exactly but I think as long as it is stored in a dry, coolish dark place it should keep for several months. I have a bag of brown rice that has been in the cupboard for more than a year and its still fine.

I always store my brown rice, dried beans, flour, etc. in the freezer and have never had any problems. With the humidity in Florida I usually have to opt for either the refridgerator or freezer with all my grains.<br><br><br><br>

I've heard that brown rice can store in the cupboard for 3-6 months before going rancid. Storing in the freezer, you can keep it for about a year. Since things like humidity can affect storage, you might have longer or shorter storage time IRL.<br><br><br><br>
Cooked rice will store for about a week in the fridge and frozen... will store 6 months or so.<br><br><br><br>
I store my cooked and uncooked grains in the freezer. They last longer without going off and I don't have to worry about buggies getting in my stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">
