Did you know that China produces over 200 tons of rice every year? This country is the largest rice producer in the world, but there is a problem. According to The Korean Times, Chinese rice is very dangerous because it contains plastic.
According to a report of The Korean Times, this rice is actually artificial rice made out of potato starch and plastic, steamed with rice aroma. Investigation showed that fake rice is full of plastic and it can contain plastic as much as one plastic bag.
If you are scared that you eat a fake rice, you can identify it with these tricks.
You just need to put a tablespoon of the rice in a glass of water and see what happens. Organic rice falls to the bottom of the glass.
First, you need to cook a handful of rice and put it in a plastic container. Leave it in a sunny place for several days. Organic rice should be moldy in 2 days, while fake rice will stay intact.
