Rice is probably one of the most popular foods in the world. Now, whether you prefer brown or white rice over any other, doesn’t really matter in terms of what this post is about. This is about your health! And it may be at stake once you find out what’s going on behind the scenes in rice production.
For the last couple years, China has been making rice out of plastic. In a report from a Singapore publication, they stated that this fake rice is made out of potato, sweet potatoes and plastic that contains poison!
One clear sign that the rice you have is plastic is if, after you cook it, the grains remain hard.
Investigative journalists found out that this fake rice is mixed with the real deal and made to look and smell like real rice. It’s shipped to stores and consumers often can’t tell the difference. Apparently, over 800,000 tons of REAL rice is actually made in the world, but when you look at the data, over 10 MILLION tons of rice is actually sold.
