This looks like it would be be great for filling sand bags.
I didn't read the title and that's what I thought it was.
Those do exist I have used them before. Almost exactly the same as this, slightly different dimensions.
Has no one noticed the pig on the side of the bag. My guess is that this is animal feed. And that's why they don't care that it's dumped on the ground.

Dude they throw that shit on the ground wether it’s for humans or animals. Rural Asia don’t give a fuck.
You know that it's done all over the world right?
You don’t just open a bag of unhusked rice and shove them down your throat immediately
This is why you need to wash your rice
These rice still have shell, these bags will be bring to the milling machine to remove the shell, then you will have the clean white rice to eat, but sure, wash your rice gently before you cook them.
The main reason to wash rice you’d buy in any regular, western store is because it helps keep the rice from getting clumpy. You’re rinsing off the starch that’s on the outside of the grains.
I never realized how much better it is when it's been properly washed. It's a must if you want that Chipotle rice texture.
There’s certain instances when you wouldn’t want to wash the rice though—like risotto, or if you’re making an Asian sticky rice dish.
Disagree on the sticky rice bit. It's 100% necessary to rinse Japanese rice. It's still very sticky after rinsed.
It'll literally be a starch blob if you don't rinse it first.
I've only seen two recipes for riceballs in my life, a dish where you need sticky rice. Both times I was told to wash the rice.
Maybe they modified the recipe for western strains of rice? You’re always supposed to wash actual Japanese short grain rice until the water runs clear.
Yeah thats pretty much exactly when you do need to wash the rice. I wouldnt want to see how it looks otherwise
Oh please wise one, tell me the correct way to cook unwashed rice, and how it differs from cooking washed rice.
Also, I was specifically talking about Japanese sticky/short grain rice. You can make unwashed long grain rice, it's just sort of stupid, as rinsing removes some of the dirt/debris/pesticides, as well as excess starch.
the soaking is totally new to me!
Pretty sure Chinese sticky rice is also soaked for an hour or so, and then rinsed. Arborio and other short grain rice meant for risotto don't need to be rinsed, but I can't think of many other instances rice shouldn't be rinsed.
I don't rinse purple rice when I'm cooking it with other stuff in the instant pot, but that's intentional because the stickiness helps everything meld a little better. We call it "purple porridge", and it was a trick to make my littles eat healthy (they don't know how much meat and veg is mixed in with the lentils and rice, they would just chow down because it was purple). That said, rice cooked by itself is a big ol clump without a rinse; even my sweet rice gets a good wash before it goes in the pot.
Sticky icky rice
There's actually a sticky rice variety. It's really sticky even if you wash it.
No. You always wash rice just get different rice.
Exactly I make jasmine rice with the highest quality America has to offer. Never washed and it’s fine!
That and dead bugs tend to float. ;)
Or, you know, the arsenic. Rinse your rice!
Rice washing also helps reduce arsenic levels.
But you're also rinsing off the added nutrients that we use in NA. not an issue if you have a varied diet and don't eat rice all the time, but if you're a broke college student basically living off it, you might actually need those.
They only add those to some rice—the generically named “enriched white rice”. If you’re buying jasmine, basmati, etc, they don’t add anything.
Best me to it! Definition wash the rice before cooking! A few times!
It's the same in Korea too. We rinse off the starch although many people only think they're washing off dirt.
But I don't want to rinse the starch! I want all the nutrients that I've paid for.
So it goes from bulk to bagged like this, then taken to a milling plant somewhere to be opened to remove the rice shells, then re-bagged once again? Don't we do everything like that in bulk loads for the efficiency? This makes no sense to my western agriculture experience.
Yes, [it does](https://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH/232923244/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH.jpg_.webp).
Wow that is an insanely thorough and intensive process
Now tell me what the process is for whitening.
Because I though white rice was just a different variety of plant.
You're right it is, or more accurately, they are.
There are a lot of [varieties](https://www.foodrepublic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Posh-Rice_Rice-Varieties-1-1024x672.jpg) of commercially grown rice, many of which are white, but the 'whitening process' is simply a process of tumbling/rubbing the grains against each other to remove grain dust and give it a luster.
I see, that makes sense.
Does people who doesnt wash their rice exist ?? The fuck ?
Because rice where these people buy it isn't dirty, so the only reason to wash it would be texture, which means it wasn't passed down so they never even heard of washing rice
I never wash rice, just fry it until it's so hot you can't hold one grain and get that pretty white color. This way they won't be sticky and you get those beautiful aromas out of the rice.
I don’t. It’s fine, I’m not buying rice that’s been shoveled off the ground into a bag. It really depends on where you buy your rice and how it’s processed. My parents grew up in South East Asia, so it made sense that that was the recommendation back then. When the situation changed, I changed with it.
Its not a cleanliness issue its a culinary issue. Removing the starch makes for better, less clumpy rice.
Why would I wash rice that's dumb
I came from a family of farmers. Grain silos are *fucking disgusting* and full of insects, birds and sometimes even rats or other small animals. Doesn't matter the scale, I've seen small silos and huge international port silos and they all the same.
They do the best to try and keep the grain clean but it's basically impossible to do.
If you buy some brand rice(or any grain, really) then they surely washed/cleaned it properly. But if you buy a random bag of rice or a not-so-good brand then washing it is a *must*
And whatever shit is in grains pales in comparison with the filth that's in vegetables.
Bugs can get into (or are already in) the rice. And some of the more inexpensive brands have little stones in the rice which you find. Just rinse, swish around, and pour out the extra starch.
Alright so I wash my rice. How exactly is that going to filter out the bugs
Bug floats and rice not duh...
Yeah, the bugs float. You can keep rinsing/washing them all out, but I'm pretty much so disgusted by then and decide that I'd rather starve than eat. That's just me and my neuroses.
As asian, i've been eating rice every day my entire life and i can count how many times i've seen bugs while im washing the rice, most people wash the rice is not because theres bug in it but the starch make the rice taste basically like shiet..i vomit once because the rice is not washed properly.
Washing your rice before cooking gets some starch? Away so it should not be as mushly looking rice in the end.
At least that's why I got from some cooking show chef, was it few times in cold water, dunno do I remember it correctly.
There might be other factors why it is good to wash it like veggies. But I always wash it because of the cooking chef.
Wash your rice before you boil it 🤔 mhm
Yes, otherwise loose starch dissolves into the water and can impact the texture of the cooked rice.
Do you drain your rice with a colander too?
Sometimes I do, this helps to drastically decrease the stickiness. Otherwise you just a blob of rice and starch.
How would you suggest we move them, you buy your rice in a box, or a bottle?
Maybe the truck that dumped it on the side of the road could bring it to the mill instead?
Don’t know much about where your food comes from huh?
They could be on the farm filming this for all we know. That rice was probably dropped by a tractor or whatever tools they use for rice farming idk
Still need to pack them tho, just like cement.
It can be transport in bigger bags if you going to mill it
The grains are for pig feed, said on the bag.
Thought the same thing as soon as I saw the post.
Such a dirty post.
Words taken right out of my mouth. Along with the rice I just spit out!!
Unless you eat rice with the shell on, no not really.
Many people enjoy the nutritional benefits of brown rice. But even with white rice, you need to wash the extra starch off of it or it will be mushy.
Brown rice is still deshelled, but has the bran layer and cereal germ intact (which is why it needs to cook longer). What’s in the video is intact rice (hull, bran, germ and grain).
Oh, ok. Thanks. It did feel a little bit like I was talking out of my ass.
Shit I guess I gotta start doing that
Thanks! What I came to say.
You wash rice to remove starch. Running rice under water doesn't sanitize it.
None spilled? r/oddlysatisfying
How it get on ground in first place
This is land-rice, it grows in the ground.
God damn it. Take my up vote, but know there are dozens of us out here that support only superior [aerospace rice](https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-07-12/china-harvests-first-crop-of-space-rice-in-food-security-push).
After harvest, the rice is wet, they have to dry them, so they lay them on the floor under sunlight.
In the first bag
I need one of these things for my kids’ Lego
Work smarter not harder
"I ordered 1000 cubes but i got 998 cubes and 2 fucking spheres? "
Working smarter would be not putting all the rice on the floor in the first place.
Has to dry somehow
Seeing people talking about that rice is "dirty"... yeah, where do you think vegetables come from? They grow out of the ground... in the dirt... with all the insects and worms and stuff.
The next logical step would be processing and packaging, and even at the end product, it isn't like you don't wash fruits/vegetables before cooking/eating them.
People here are acting as if their food comes out of a startrek food replicator.
It would be cool though.
Yep, they've never seen [rice harvesting](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/Wd78mdiwrpA/maxresdefault.jpg), or a grain truck, or [silos](https://www.cnsilos.com/agriculture-silo/rice-silo.html), or the [steps it goes through](https://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH/232923244/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH.jpg_.webp) before it hits the store and then your table.
Besides, this is going for animal feed, note the piggy on the bag.
That doesn't even include the naked farmer rice bath at the end.
True, I assumed that the pig was just a branding thing, but animal feed also makes sense.
Could do with that for sand bags in emergency weather conditions.
He should put a 10lb weight on the handle as a counter weight.
That'd make the whole apparatus 10lb heavier though, making it harder to push around and manipulate for scooping. Not sure if it'd be better
I *LOVE* "Why the hell didn't I think of this?" systems like this one. Simple concept, simple & inexpensive machinery, minimal muscular effort, rapid & efficient completion of the task.
There really ought to be a Nobel Prize for stuff like this.
Scrolled looking for this comment.
Work smarter, not harder
But Is this really less effort than holding the bag open on ground and pushing grains in by hand or a spade?
Anything that keeps you standing upright and not bending/leaning over is a welcome change. Even if productivity is unaffected, I imagine this would be much better for the worker's back health.
Doing it that way you would still have to lift the bag to get rice all the way to the bottom, then setting it down to push rice in again. So I'd say it's both less effort and faster.
Shovelling fucking sucks and there's no real way to do it long term without injuring something
Rice, dirt, rocks, whatever; it all goes in the bag.
And then through a [multi stage cleaning process](https://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH/232923244/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH.jpg_.webp).
But wait, there's more!
r/specializedtools would appreciate this
Parking lot Rice! My favorite.
Why is everyone so concerned about it? Putting it on the ground is not going to kill you. Where do you think carrots and potatoes come from?
90% of the comment section would faint in the spot if they ever saw the inside of a grain silo or a rice harvester.
It is funny because he is actually packing pig feed.
Dude, this is fucking genius
Please remember to wash your rice before cooking & eating. That is all.
lol these Americans who don’t really eat rice complaining about how the sand will be mixed in the rice. It will be put in the milling machine. Also it’s common sense to wash rice before cooking it in LOW HEAT. It’s not like you’re gonna eat the sands too. Smh if you don’t know anything about rice why are you complaining.
This post just made me feel right white cause I’m out here boiling my rice, but apparently I’m doing it wrong.
*"Bring rice & water to a full boil for 1 minute then cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until done"*.
I’m sorry I meant boiling it in low heat, not cook. English is not my first language mb
> Also it’s common sense to wash rice before cooking it in LOW HEAT
wdym American guy
I’ll have the pasta please
I mean... rice comes from the dirt..
and its concrete
These rice still have shell, these bags will be bring to the milling machine to remove the shell, then you will have the clean white rice to eat. Cool?
Ooooo, a blasting cap!
They can mix other thing and make more money
That's why you wash your rice.
If this doesn’t convince you …
Wash your rice people ..
This is why you always rinse your rice before you cook it.
Edit: And someone else already made this comment, of course.
Mmmm love some dusty floor rice!
This certainly explains why most bags recommended rinsing.
This is a job I can do!
Raiden Mk2 cameo Whoospsie
Need to make one of these
Work smart, not hard
Seems like you could just put the bag on the scooper part and skip the step where you have to lift it
Now this is engineering
I need one of these for the Zombie Apocalypse.
I thought it was a french fry scooper at first.
Well I’m sold! Where do I insert my card #?
Weird question. Why do all of these clips coming out of Asian countries have that wondershare filmora go watermark?
They do not need to go to the gym if they do that every day!
Can also be used for sand bags
Wow so interesting
How big of cat do they have
Haha, ever heard the saying if you want something bro be faster employ a smart lazy person???!
Someone from FEMA and down in the floodplains needs to see this for filling sandbags.
I feel like just using a bucket by hand would be faster than wheeling that thing back and forth
This is why we have to wash our rice
This is really amazing, for lazy people
I would rather be lazy than need back surgery
And this is why you wash your rice.
Mmm street rice
Who doesn't like rice that's on the ground
Ohhhhhh that’s why they’re always containing bugs
I really need to start washing my rice before cooking…
Being rice straight on the pavement, very sanitary…
This is why you wash rice before you cook it.
That second scoop has what looks like a turd in it.
So that's where the cat hair came from.
Second scoop got a nice cat turd.
The street dust is free
This is why you rinse your rice.
For some reason after watching this video it suddenly makes sense to me why you are supposed to rinse your rice.
Don't worry, it all just goes to a [big warehouse](https://media.istockphoto.com/photos/rice-warehouse-picture-id1127134248?k=20&m=1127134248&s=170667a&w=0&h=BWRfRNOSv1Qp_ArqmUfLsJXsnRx-OZgy3E3Lc9Dfc64=) and from there to a distributor who will [process and package it](https://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH/232923244/HTB1E2ZnXfvi21VjSZK9q6yAEpXaH.jpg_.webp) before it hits the stores. It gets cleaned.
Mmm Road Rice
