  • White Rice Containing Toxins?

    My girlfriend is an avid sushi eater. I used to love a good roll of sushi, but since going primal a few years ago I can't seem to stomach the rice any longer. It gives me a bit of a stomach ache, which lead me to question the tertiary contents of rice.

    With that being said, I have read that for the most part white rice is basically an inert food. Not truly containing a large amount of nutrition, and ultimately acting as a starchy, fibrous filler. With that being considered, has anyone read or heard about white rice containing Amylopectin A, Mycotoxins, or Alfatoxins like found in many other grains and lentils.

    I haven't found any evidence of this but, with corn being such a ripe breading ground for mycotoxin I find it hard to believe that white rice's storage and handling to be so far removed from that of corn.

    If anyone has heard about similar contamination in rice, I would be interested to read through the original material.

    Thank you!

    I think if rice gives you problems when you eat it, you are probably intolerant to it. This is not unknown, and would be independent of whether toxins are present in micro quantities.

      I've read a few recent articles that imported rice has high levels of lead.

        Yes! I saw this too. It's a little bit worrisome because I eat white rice probably 5x a week.

          Rice contains arsenic too.

                If you're having an issue, maybe you need to look at the other things you are consuming along with it. Are you eating soy sauce? Are you having a reaction to the fish? Try eating rice completely by itself, or with something you know for certain you do tolerate. White rice is pretty benign.
                Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
