How Many Grains of Rice?

Ricegrains1500ppxWe asked you to guess how many grains of rice there are in one pound of long grain rice. We had many answers, ranging from around 8,000 to 1 million. We had six guesses that came in within our 1,000 grain cushion, and the two lucky winners who will each receive a Hawai‘i Book of Rice + rice paddle prize package are:

Josh Schaeffer, who guessed 30,000

and

Lori Hasegawa, who guessed 29,100

The correct answer (as published in The Hawai‘i Book of Rice)? Approximately 29,000 grains of rice in one pound of long-grain rice.

Congratulations to Josh and Lori! We hope you’ll make some delicious rice-ipes and share your results with us!
