Here’s How To Identify Rice That Contains Plastic

The largest producer of rice is always China.They harvest is been spread all around the world for the people to use.

But there is something that we should all look out for. The Chinese rice is filled with pesticides and chemicals and we are not aware of them, and the food we thought we eat is healthy in fact is not.

The starch from potatoes is getting mixed with plastic (synthetic resin, for instance) and after that it is being formed into rice been.

At the end the fake rice is given rice aroma to look more natural. Doctors have emphatically warned against consuming the artificial product: three full portions apparently contain as much plastic as there is in a little plastic bag. That’s alarming!

With these simple tricks you can test whether your rice is wholesome and plastic-free:

The Water Test

Pour a tablespoon of uncooked rice into a glass with cold water. If the rice all sinks to the bottom of the glass, it’s fine. If the grains float up to the surface, be careful!

The Fire Test

Try setting a little bit of your rice on fire with a match or lighter. If it starts burning right away and smells like burning plastic, then you know what to do! (Do not eat it!)

The Mortar and Pestle Test

When you crush a few grains of rice with a mortar and pestle they should be reduced to a fine, white, starchy powder.

But with artificial rice, you will see a light yellow discoloration instead.

The Mold Test

If you want to know for sure whether your cooked rice is quite safe, put a small quantity of cooked rice into an airtight container and leave it in a warm place.

Within a couple of days it will have gotten moldy. Only fake rice stays mold-free.

This is how to be on the safe side. Show these tricks to your rice-eating friends and that way no one will have to eat plastic for dinner!
