Common method of cooking rice can leave traces of arsenic in food, scientists warn

Experiments suggest normal method for cooking rice can expose consumers to range of health problems including heart disease, diabetes and cancer

Scientists warn that the usual method of cooking rice — simply boiling it in a pan with some water — can expose those who eat it to traces of the poison arsenic JMacPherson/Flickr

Millions of people could be putting themselves at risk by cooking their rice incorrectly, scientists have warned.

Recent experiments show a common method of cooking rice — simply boiling it in a pan until the water has steamed out — can be insufficient in preventing exposure to traces of the poison arsenic, which contaminates rice while it is growing as a result of industrial toxins and pesticides.

The chemical has been linked to a range of health problems including heart disease, diabetes and cancer, as well as development problems.

While it is generally believed traces of arsenic are expelled when the rice is cooked, it has now been claimed this only takes place adequately when the rice is soaked overnight.

Andy Meharg, professor of biological sciences at Queens University Belfast, tested three ways of cooking rice for the BBC programme 'Trust Me, I’m a Doctor', to see whether it altered the levels of arsenic.

In the first method, Professor Meharg used a ratio of two parts water to one part rice, where the water was “steamed out” during cooking — a method commonly used.

He found this left most of the arsenic present.

By contrast, when the he used five parts water to one part rice and washed the excess water off, levels of arsenic were almost halved, while in the third method, in which the rice was soaked overnight,  levels of the toxin were reduced by 80 per cent.

The safest method of cooking rice is therefore to soak it overnight, then wash and rinse it until the water is clear, before draining it well and boiling in a saucepan, with a ratio of five parts water to one part rice.

According to 2014 research from Channel 4’s Dispatches and the Institute for Global Food Security, around 58 per cent of rice-based products in the UK contained high levels of arsenic. However, new legal limits were introduced last year by the EU in response to safety concerns.

Here’s How to Identify Rice That Contains Plastic

(Before It's News)

China remains the world’s largest producer of rice. The Middle Kingdom harvests over 200 million tons per year and a large share of it gets exported all over the world.

But cooks and diners alike should take care: not only are untold amounts of pesticides used in Chinese agriculture, but according to a report in The Korea Times rice is also now being manufactured artificially.

Potato starch gets mixed with plastic (synthetic resin, for instance) and then formed into rice-shaped kernels.

Finally the grains are steamed with a typical rice aroma. Doctors have emphatically warned against consuming the artificial product: three full portions apparently contain as much plastic as there is in a little plastic bag. That’s alarming!

With these simple tricks you can test whether your rice is wholesome and plastic-free:

The Water Test

Pour a tablespoon of uncooked rice into a glass with cold water. If the rice all sinks to the bottom of the glass, it’s fine. If the grains float up to the surface, be careful!

The Fire Test

Try setting a little bit of your rice on fire with a match or lighter. If it starts burning right away and smells like burning plastic, then you know what to do! (Do not eat it!)

The Mortar and Pestle Test

When you crush a few grains of rice with a mortar and pestle they should be reduced to a fine, white, starchy powder.

But with artificial rice, you will see a light yellow discoloration instead.

The Mold Test

If you want to know for sure whether your cooked rice is quite safe, put a small quantity of cooked rice into an airtight container and leave it in a warm place.

Within a couple of days it will have gotten moldy. Only fake rice stays mold-free.

This is how to be on the safe side. Show these tricks to your rice-eating friends and that way no one will have to eat plastic for dinner!
