Quigg’s Yellow Rice

 My Daughter-in-Law is a very active young lady. Plays competitive tennis, works in her family Dental Practice as a Certified Dental Hygienist, raising three very active children, you get the picture, busy, busy, busy.

She ask me to help her find a healthy , all natural Yellow Rice, as she and her family love Yellow Rice, but all the brands she was familiar with had lots of MSG, and other scientific sounding names, like Maltodextrin, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Proteins, Yellow and Red Dyes, scary, yucky sounding ingredients. It seems today's young adults still want to consume their favorite staple food items, but want them to be healthy, gluten free and verified non-gmo. 

As usual, her timing was excellent.

As the owner of America's Oldest Rice Mill, (104 yrs. old this month) I had just finished cleaning up a brand of Yellow Rice we purchased some years ago, but had quit selling it because I didn't like some of the ingredients the original formula contained.

Our Quigg’s Yellow Rice, a well-known name in the South East USA, is now ready to sell and I was thrilled to be able to give some to my favorite Daughter-in-Law.

Our Quigg’s Yellow Rice DOES NOT HAVE ANY MSG, NO DYES OF ANY KIND, NO HVPS, NO MALTODEXTRIN, and NO SUGAR.  It in fact, is the only clean, natural ingredient Yellow Rice in North America and we think the World. On top of being an all-natural product it is Certified Gluten Free by GIG, Verified NON-GMO by the NON-GMO Project and Star K Kosher. 

Now here is the real kicker...it tastes GREAT!

It is also priced very competitively.

Our Distribution on our Quigg’s Yellow Rice is pretty limited since it is so new. Ingles Supermarkets in the Mid Atlantic area carries it as does the Whole Foods chain in Florida. We also have several really outstanding independent Natural Stores in the South East USA who stock it. In the Mid-West you can find it in Hy-Vee stores.

The rest of the country will have to order it directly from our secure website, www.rmquiggs.com

Please try our Quigg's Yellow Rice, we think you will agree with us, it tastes great, is healthy, and competitively priced.

FROM THE PRESIDENT:

Wow, does the time fly when you’re having fun!  When I bought Conrad Rice Mill in 1975, I was the youngest rice miller in the USA.  Now, after 40 years of running this old Mill, I’m the oldest rice miller in the USA.  Frankly, I think that’s a good thing – you do learn a little along the way!  In my case one of the things we think we’ve figured out is where the food trends are going and how they can apply to our operation.  Simple, really.  All along we just kept making the best products we could, using simple, pure ingredients.  Recently, I read in the Wall Street Journal that the major food companies are reformulating their products to meet today’s consumers’ desire for simple, pure products.  Well, that must make us pretty darn smart as that’s how we’ve always made our products.  The bench mark among our employees is: “If we can’t pronounce an ingredient or if it sounds too scientific, we don’t use it, ever”.  Case in point, our QUIGGS brand Yellow Rice is the only yellow rice in North America that is made with pure, simple ingredients.  No MSG, no HVP, no red or yellow dyes, etc.   It is just not necessary to use all those chemically sounding ingredients.  They sound so scary that I figure they can’t be good for you – so why use them?  Keep it Simple, that’s our motto.  We keep tweaking our product line, trying to make what we make better and made more efficiently.  For those of you living on the West Coast, we’ve picked up two new distributors, one in the Bay Area and the other in Sacramento, California.  We’re also making headway in the Pacific North West.  Our beautiful home town of New Iberia, Louisiana continues to remain a great place to work and live.  Please come see us and visit America’s Oldest Rice Mill.  We’re open to the public Monday thru Saturday, year round.  Lots of good stuff for you to eat and some great Louisiana coffee to wash it down with.  Thank you for your continued support of our brands and our operation.  We do appreciate it!
