Beware, China Is Making Rice from Plastic – Here’s How to Spot It
Ladies and gentlemen, first of all, you should know that we all need to watch what we eat. Why? Well, that’s easy to answer –because what we eat has an impact on our health in general. This means that we shouldn’t consume too much fat, cholesterol, and sugar. This is also very important for you to know – we read the ingredients label and try to make healthy food choices.
You’ll be shocked when we tell you about this scary trend, coming out of China! Well yes, according to the report, they are apparently making rice out of plastic!This is very bad, because we all know that plastic is not part of any diet!
According to the experts, the fake rice substitute is being made from sweet potatoes, potatoes and a synthetic resin (aka plastic). When the ingredients mix, they form grains that resemble rice. It is then sprayed with a chemical fragrance to make it smell like an expensive brand of rice called Wuchang rice.
Ladies and gentlemen, this means that you should be very careful, because it is really hard to tell the difference between the actual rice and the plastic rice. The fake rice isn’t being sold in the U.S., but it is in other countries.
But, don’t worry, because in this article we’re going to show you some tips on how you can be sure your rice is the real deal:
- First option is to soak your rice in water! How this works – well, real rice will sink in a glass of water, and fake rice will float.
- This is also very useful – you can put cooked rice on the counter for several days, if it molds it is real – if no mold forms, it is not real rice.
- Or, you can do this – when you cook your rice, if you notice a thick layer on top of the water, it is probably the fake rice.
- A flame held by fake rice will emit a plastic aroma, and it will burn like plastic would.And, one last thing – don’t forget to watch the video below to see the tests in action.
