Rice as a desiccant
    #4229802 - 05/28/05 01:42 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Does rice work well as a desiccant? I have several grams of semi-dry shrooms in an air tight tupperware container with rice at the bottom. Will the shrooms become cracker dry, or should I buy a commercial drying agent such as calcium oxide or silica gel?

Thanks.

Well I have heard of people using cat litter and junk. I just went to my local drug stores and asked for little desiccant packets out of their drug jars...I went to 3 diffrent stores and got about 35-40 packets...FOR FREE!!!

plan white rice will help protect shrooms after thy are completely dry, but it's not absorbent enough to be an affective desiccant.

Just get some DampRid from your local grocery store or Home Depot. It's real cheap.

I just got from a shopping trip for a desiccant. I tried 4 different stores and none of them had it. One employee told me it has been taken off the market in Canada. The only dessicants I have are silica gel packets from shoes and PillowPaks:

If I add these dessicants to the closed containers with rice and shrooms will they absorb the moisture from the mushrooms?

If I don't get them cracker dry soon, they will begin to rot. Help please!!

Thanks.

panic! Eat them all!

set up a fan at the bottom of your container, facing up toward your mushrooms, and leave it on.
