HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Loved the end of that 3rd clip!

But that rice wasn't exactly what I was thinking it was going to be. I thought you'd see plastic melting, yet I saw rice toasting as if it was walnuts or almonds. I'd lean closer to this being the left over rice bits and dust being made into more rice than plastic being in it.

It would of reacted a bit different if plastic was in the rice, I'd expect more liquid to be created from the breaking down of the plastic chemicals. This more or less toasted.

Anything will combust into flames ( food wise ) if it's been heated and dried long enough, that's the laws of combustion, lots of heat eventually leads to a flame.

I've melted my fair share of plastic and other things having a healthy interest in fire when I was younger and in my kitchen experiences and would expect a bit more from plastic rice being cooked.

Also I grew up in a family restaurant and if those rices bit and dust were compressed to create rice then air would of naturally gotten into the pieces and would cause it to float. Not to mention anything else that was on it would help it float too.

If it was plastic it wouldn't sink at all and would also expect the rice to turn black than brown when heated.

Is this anything to do with plastic fake news stories?


No.
None of these links are to MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN or FOX.

Plastic rice would cost more than real rice.

However, there definitely is such a thing as artificial rice. It's made from the rice dust and crumbly little bits of rice that would otherwise be a loss after handling large quantities of rice. They grind the rice giblets into flour, and reform it into something that looks like rice. It's got a binder, generally oil of some sort, and is supposed to look and taste like rice.

What a rice making machine might look like


You obviously did not review the videos. This junk is made from plastic.


Its made from what is called re-grind so is virtually free to purchase. Injection moulding creates a lot of waste, from the injection point / path called a sprue to any defective product that cannot be sold. After injection the material changes properties and as such, after this waste has been re-ground into pellets, it can not be used in great quantity in any new product without altering the properties of the material or shape of the finished moulded part.

Some genius it would appear, has found a use for this waste material, and it doesn't surprise me at all.

You dry cook it in a cast iron skillet like they did? Rice will combust, my ex-girlfriend burned her kitchen down when she left rice cooking too long.

Plastic is more than just plastic .......... there are varying types depending on the finished properties you require, then you have the properties of the "masterbatch", the stuff that colourises the product.

There is more to "plastic" than meets the eye, its a science

Is that the best you can do, misspelling your weak refutation and casting dispersion on just two of the links that I provided?
Where are your links?
So hey, if it's soooo good to eat, you and the other freakmasons can go eat several bowls full. Bon Appétit

I completely agree with you there, I have been researching plastic and specifically what is left when you break it down to reuse it. There is a plethora of plastic types because of that very issue and then all the chemicals that go into each type of plastic to make it what it is, same amount of ingredients for some food recipes.

I just would expect more flammability from the rice if it contained plastic or chemicals used for plastic production. Specifically because most of those plastics are polymers of hydrocarbons and as a result are high flammable. You don't see the black tar or even a chemical reaction like you'd expect when heating plastic / plastic chemicals.

Obviously, you consider these sources to be authoritative. Says something, I suppose.

Why do people buy any food from China? Just don't do it. Where I am from the country of origin of my food is clearly labelled. My rice comes from Thailand and India.

Too many food scandals out of China for me to trust anything from there.

On a plus... Plastic rice = zero calories.

Depend's upon how you want to prepare your rice, I wash it and wash it until the bran is as gone as I can make it, keep the bran for sticky rice but otherwise this is the best way to make rice.

A tip off my sister is to put a small knob of butter in the bottom of your rice pan and after melting it throw the rice into the pan and fry the washed rice (tiny knob of butter you don't want greasy rice) a little before adding the water, then of course add your pinch of saffron to the rice while it is cooking.



Main Post.


I have heard of plastic rice and China in general is a rather less sanitory source of food production than many other nation's though of course it changes from region to region and from person to person, also some of the damn tastiest food in the world though they will eat almost anything and have a recipe to go with it (including people in some region's according to some less then varifiable sources heretical.com... chinasucks.org... www.weirdasianews.com... www.rfa.org...
but like I say treat these with a pinch of salt as we do not know how true they are in some cases, third hand report's are often distorted etc)


Danger of plastic in your diet includes cancer causing property's of some polymer byproduct's etc and also it would in general do you no good at all even with the potential of becoming lodged and trapped in your gut as it would be indigestible.

Similar to how you would make risotto when you toast the rice in olive oil prior to adding your liquids.

Eat what? 'Plastic rice'? There is no such thing.

Well, supposedly they make fake eggs in China that they sell to the people there. I guess they are trying to put chickens out of business over there. You got to eat fake rice with fake eggs.

Buy Thai or Vietnamese rice...Milagrosa is the best, IMO. Avoid the Chinese stuff then.

The original source, veryvietnam dot com is no more it seems. I wonder why


This story has been around for about five years and not a single credible source of information has picked up on it? Yeah sure.

My guess is a company in Vietnam was engaging in a little hanky panky to increase sales of Vietnamese rice and some less than credible sites in the West picked up on it as click bait.

but, rice does not combust into flames that keeps burning in the pan, even after you take it away from the stove like the 3rd clip showed


If you put uncooked rice in a cast iron skillet like they did it will char and burn. It has little to no moisture.


been there, my wife of 34 years is of Japanese decent (parents were in the camps) we have rice 3 to 4 times a week.....it doesn't keep flaming up.....it'll char and burn, but that's it



It will when you get it hot enough what you saw is the starch burning. Just like overcooking sugar it will burn.

Apparently burning rice will get you kicked out of bed.
