Can we bring in cooking oil and rice/wheat alongwith our checked in luggage into United States? If so, is there a place where I can find out the carrying limit of those two items?

I can't find any kind of prohibition about bringing cooking oil and rice into the US for personal consumption.

as far as i aknow, there is no restriction on oil. i have brought some over myself--my MIL makes her own olive oil--it is POTENT!
dont know about the rice, but i dont think it would be a problem, as it is a dry food--like cereal.

You'll probably have to check the cooking oil. It has the potential for making a real mess - you should avoid glass containers and pack it securely as if you were putting it in the gorilla cage -

The rice/wheat would be less of a problem but you'll need to go through the Dept. of Agriculture line in Customs.

Personally I can find any sort of grain or cooking oil that I want here in the States, but, whatever.

A friend of mine lost two bottles of ice wine that he was transporting on American Airlines. Well packed BUT in checked luggage. It ruined some of his clothes.
