We need to be extremely careful when choosing the food we consume, as it has the major impact on our health.
Unfortunately, the modern era brought about numerous dangers, due to the various toxins and chemicals in processed foods, as well as the pollutants in the air and soil.
Apparently, the Chinese have invented something even more disgusting and scary: plastic rice! This fake rice is made of potatoes, sweet potatoes, and synthetic resin or plastic, all mixed together in grains which look like rice.
Therefore, make sure you read these tips to help you detect if your rice at home is fake:
-- When you boil it, if it forms a thick layer on the surface, it’s plastic.
-Put one tablespoon in a glass of water, and if it floats, it’s fake.
-- Cook a cup of the rice and then transfer it to a container. Store it on the counter and leave it there for a few days. Then, if you see mold on the rice, it is organic, and if there is no mold, the rice is fake.
