Arsenic in Rice – FDA to Further Investigate

Have you heard the news reports today regarding the alarming levels of arsenic found in rice?  Both white rice and brown rice are under further investigation by the FDA.  There are actually higher levels of arsenic found in brown rice because it still contains the bran (the outer shell).  As always everything in moderation and a varied diet is best. There is no need to stop eating rice, just be aware.  Here are some things you can do:

  • Wash rice thoroughly before cooking.  Rinse the rice until the water runs clear and then add new water to your pot before cooking.

Use a 6 to 1 water to rice ratio.
