The story with plastic rice was in Primorye. A resident of Primorye bought rice, which smelled strange, then he decided to warm it up. The rice was melted like plastic .
Then there were stories about Chinese rice , which is made from starch and plastic.
But the story from social networks reached Rospotrebnadzor. It was then that the suspicious product was checked.
The examination showed that "burning" rice corresponds to GOST , but the manufacturer's documentation was not all right.
Experts believe that even if such rice is produced in China, it will not pass through our customs. At least in large quantities. Or counterfeits can be produced in our clandestine workshops.
The Chinese rice video still raises many questions. Some consider it to be the antics of competitors, others as a joke, and still others as a provocation.
In general, this story is considered more fictional than real. Moreover, it was the burning rice that was checked.
But, if you are still afraid, there is an easy way to distinguish real rice from plastic. You just need to throw it into the water. The plastic one will float, and the real one will gradually sink, absorbing water.
The video was circulated on the Internet, but I don't know what and why they actually did it there. If you have ever cooked rice, in any form, the imitation will be absolutely obvious at the cooking stage.
