2. Non-Organic Rice May Contain Traces of Arsenic.
Research recently published suggests that some non-organic U.S.
long grain rice may have 1.4 to 5 times more arsenic than rice
from Europe, India or Bangladesh.
Mycotoxin (fungus-triggered toxin) called T-2
can be produced in rice by the fungus Fusarium.
Be sure to keep your cooked rice in a tightly sealed
container when stored in your refrigerator.
Since brown rice still features an oil-rich germ,
it is more susceptible to becoming rancid than
white rice and therefore should be stored in the refrigerator.
Stored in an airtight container, brown rice will keep fresh for about six months.
