How to spot the most common fake foods
Suspicions about plastic rice being passed off for food went viral in 2017. However, food safety agencies have yet to find any evidence that supports the rumors.If you want to stay on the safe side, you can test rice by making sure it sinks in water, boiling it, and heating it on a hot skillet. While plastic beads that resemble rice do exist, they’re primarily used to cushion fragile items during shipping. You could purchase some online and set up a fun experiment. Try testing plastic and real rice side by side so you can clearly see the differences between them.
