All of these are symbols that the rice are old rice that are at least one year old. The rice probably had been harvested at least a year or two ago, and has been sitting in their warehouse for the entire time. Although the rice does not go bad and is still edible, it loses its flavor and texture, just like frozen chicken vs. fresh chicken. As frozen chicken is a lot cheaper than fresh chicken, Nishiki should not sell old rice at the price of new quality rice.
I have been eating Nishiki rice (the same product) for 2 years since I came to U.S. I have been buying them in local supermarkets, and those products were fresh and good. When I cooked the rice I received from Nishiki on Amazon, it could immediately tell that it is a lot worse than Nishiki rice that I previously bought, and they are using old rice to cheat on customers.
From all the previous low-star reviews on Amazon, it seems like Nishiki has been placing all the rice stocks that they could not sell properly, including old stocks or ones that have bugs, on the amazon platform to cheat the customers. This is a really bad business practice and I hope Nishiki can stop it!
Seriously? I can see that bag is completely sealed. Meaning that the bug was already there.
Won't buy Nishiki rice for some time now since I might get another rice filled with bugs...
So, I'd recommend you get the rice when you need it, use it up within a couple months, store it in an airtight container, and avoid cool, dark places. However, if you plan on using it as a long term food storage option then you'll want to go the extra step and do Mylar bags and oxygen absorbers and protect your stash - the original bag is not ideal for long term.
For a few dollars LESS than I typically find it at the Asian market (45 minutes from my house) I get the extra benefit of having someone else cart this up the three flights of stairs to my front door. In my book that's winner winner, chicken rice dinner :)
Some of the people leaving negative reviews mentioned bugs and worms in the bag, that got me a little scared, but I look through the rice and didn't see any at all.
Nice tough package! No cheap paper here! We cut the top off, roll the bag down, and use a couple of heavy-duty clips to secure it.
Much more economical in the 15-pound bag and it seems to last forever. For those who don’t know, rice stores indefinitely with no problem. It takes us months to go through 15 pounds, but that’s not even touching rice’s storage life (which is decades, if stored properly).
