Where to buy generic parboiled rice in SF?

Uncle Ben's works fine for me but there must be a generic (cheaper) brand. Also I'd like to find some parboiled brown rice. I like parboiled because it cooks in 20 minutes, tastes nice and firm and it's supposed to be more nutritious. Anyone know of stores or markets that carry it?

    Try calling Trader Joe's, I think I may have seen that in the freezer section, but call to be sure.

      I'm pretty sure May Wah on Clement sells something like this. Might be Chinese processed, so buy a lead test kit at Walgreens before you use it. I've heard they use lots of lead in their products.
