MORE ABOUT RICE

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Arsenic in our food is a real public health problem.  Rice in general is one of the foods with the highest levels of inorganic arsenic.  However, there is some good news.  Consumer Reports did some recent tests on rice and found that white basmati rice from California, India, and Pakistan, and sushi rice from the U.S. had half the amount, on average of most other types.  For more information, refer to page 2 of the February 2015 issue of Consumer Reports on Health.   You can find a full report on the Consumer Reports tests at ConsumerReports.org/cro/arsenic0215.
