Just as the artificial eggs from China earlier, not there is plastic rice spreading across Asia.
Not long ago, it was revealed that there is fake rice spreading all over the Asian continent. Initially, it was only known as a rumor on Whats App and Facebook, but then it was confirmed by the most eminent media worldwide. Only few days ago the information about the artificial eggs from China has spread worldwide, and now, the plastic rice appears. These two examples are just few of the many, showing how important it is to carefully read the labels when buying things.
As stated by local media in Asia, this fake rice was produced in a southern state in India, called Kerala. It derives from China, but it quickly spread all over Vietnam, India, and Indonesia.
As many brands sell this plastic rice combined with the normal, natural rice, even the famous brands are not to swear by. Indentifying which brands are clean and which aren’t is very difficult task to do. This fake rice is very similar to the normal rice and this causes people not to check it before use. However, the consequences, such as stomach problems, are always present.
The stomach problems, or detrimental effects to the process of digestion are mainly caused by the ingredients of this rice, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, and synthetic resign. Besides, the toxins that you take in by consuming this rice can result in numerous health issues, such as poisoning. According to the media, this fake rice is present on the market for a long time. Taiyuan and Shaanxi are the first places where this rice appeared.
The Agro-based Industry and the Malausian Agriculture Ministry refute this information and claim that their rice is all-natural and safe-to-consumer product. However, they still cannot guarantee that fake rice is not imported and sold in some small shops over the country.
As mentioned above, it is really difficult to determine the quality of the rice in the shop. However, you can do a little test at home. Consider the following indicators:
- Fake rice gives every meal some kind of different and unusual taste
- Even when cooked, this rice remains the same.
- When exposed to great heat, it burns as the plastic itself does.
