Do you know that China is the world’s largest producer of rice?
Chinese produce over 200 tons of rice every year, but do you know that their rice is made from plastic?
The information was confirmed by Korean Times. Chinese rice companies sell consumers fake rise made from plastic resin and potato starch. The mixture is them steamed up with rice aroma. This rice is added to real rice, and this combination ends in supermarkets and stores.
This required a thorough investigation, and the results were more than shocking.
The content of this rice made by Chinese was super similar to plastic bags. Can you believe that? But, you can actually make a difference between real and plastic rice.
Here are a few tips:
Test 1: Water
Add some rice to a glass of water. If it floats, you’ve got the plastic stuff.
Test 2: Fire
Light a few rice grains. Real rice doesn’t burns.
Test 3: Mortar and pestle
Crush a few rice seeds. If they turn into yellow stains, your rice is plastic.
Test 4: Mold
Cook your rice, and leave it for a few days. Real rice will be “attacked” by mold.
Try these tests to determine whether you’ve got the real stuff. Your health matters, remember that.
