Akai Rice

Does Akai rice actually reduce BG? Do they have an internet site where I can order online? According
to their literature, you must eat at least 1 cup to be effective, which seems improbable because
their product is basically a form of rice (or is it????). So if you eat more, you are taking in more
glucose. Do they sell several different mixtures? I don't have all the info, but heard that they
have one specifically for diabetics.

Where did you hear this? I've never heard of the stuff, nor have I heard such claims. And please
don't come back here spamming us under another name and telling us where we can buy this marvel of
nature. I say this because I don't recognize your name.

The only references I can find describe it as Akai (brown) rice; nothing magikal there, though
probably a little slower carb action than white. You can get brown rice pretty much anywhere; It's
all I use, and I get mine by the 20-pound bag at a local Korean/Asian grocery store. Nowadays since
I watch quantities, it last longer than it used to; I'm inclined to cook a pot and use it for
several days as my carb with meals.

Which reminds me of a lyric... spelt as I remember it:

Aki rice and fish are nice and the rum is good any time of year.

I don't know, but they make a fine range of electrical adapters for battery powered electronic
keyboards :)

You wouldn't be spamming us by any chance would you?

I always seem t cut the inside of my mouth when I eat a cup. I know it lowers my BG though, but I
suspect it's more down to the fact that cups don't contain ANYTHING in the food pyramid.

Akai rice COULD be rice.

Have you done a Google on them?

First, I apopogize for the piano link below, but I am a piano teacher and spend most of my time on
music NGs and need the link. Too lazy to keep putting it on and off. If you think I might be a
spammer, go to link and you can find out.

Here's all I know. An acquaintance swears by it, and the claims are almost too good to be true; I am
trying it out (I'm hoping its not some scam or worse), and will post results if worthwhile -- I just
bot some. The company is Akai, 125 W Main St., Old Town, Alhambra, CA 91801, 626-457-9988. They
don't seem to have a web site (did a complete google, etc., search -- unfortunately, there are
electronics and rice cooker companies called Akai, which means "red" in Japanese); I called them but
forgot to ask about web site because they were REALLY busy, swamped with customers.

They seem to deal mostly with Chinese clients, imports the stuff from France. Very expensive, almost
10X regular rice at $150/30lbs. They have regular glucose reducing mixture and diabetics' mixture.

I also found a "multi grain rice" (pearl barley, unpolished rice, kaoliangricf?????, floxnut, wheat,
oat, blackrice), which sounds more reasonable -- they claim it as a "balanced nutrition" but does
not claim to lower BG. From Taiwan. Looks like specialty rices is becoming quite a fad and money
maker. We all know white rice is bad, but I will experiment to see how these mixtures perform. If
anyone has results, please post. We will probably get lots of rice info from the orient where
diabetes is becoming recognized, because rice has been their staple and therefore a big source of
problems. It's like telling westerners not to eat bread and pasta.

Hey, I downloaded your book, so you've no need to apologise for your home-page link as far as I'm
concerned :))

And there's a saying: "If something looks too good to be true, it probably is"
