Yes but to what degree? Cooking is almost never 100% and if the antinutrient isn't there, there's nothing to be left over.

Both of those are deactivated in cooked rice. I'm pretty sure most folks cook their rice.

It's a grain. Grains aren't paleo. You could say the same thing for oats, they're not as bad as wheat, yet, should we be eating them?

What's so bad about brown rice bran? Can't say phytates, those are in all plant-foods!

No clue...

If I had to guess, I would say 'rice flour' is paleo, granted it would have a high glycemic index, which makes it not the healthiest thing in the world in excess - high blood sugar = bad. For some reason brown rice is not as ideal...something like oxalic acid or gluten. (no clue) So I imagine that would complicate it.

TL:DR - Rice flour = Kind of, but certainly not ideal.

Brown rice flour = probably not.

Thanks so much for all the replies. It's looking like the answer is no so I won't be going down that path.

Thanks again everyone.

Absolutely not. The toxins are in the bran, rice is still a grain, and while it doesn't have gluten, all the bad stuff is still in it. If you want rice flour, go with white rice flour.

Use white rice flour, it's not paleo in any case but at lease white rice does not contain all the anti nutrients. Once in a while it's not worth worrying about but if u want to eat 100% 'clean paleo' then avoid.

Personally I eat rice at least once a week and am fine with it. It's not exactly nutrient dense but it's cheap and great on workout days.

It's gluten-free at least, but generally paleo is more than just being gluten-free, but grain-free across the board.
