It is no longer news that fake plastic and poisonous rice from china has flooded Nigeria markets but what many don’t know which is a good news is that according to the Korean Times, there are several ways to differentiate the plastic rice from the real one.

The four steps are as follow
1.      Stir a tablespoon or two of the rice into a glass of water and observe. Authentic rice is more dense and will sink to the bottom of the glass. Rice formulated with plastic will float.
2.      Cook a small portion of the rice and place it into a container; leave it to rest on the counter. If after a few days, mold has not begun to form (as it should on actual rice) you know you have a plastic imposter.
3.      Be observant while boiling your rice. If a thick layer of residue is formed at the top of the water during this process – you may have reason for concern.
4.      Strike a match. When a flame is put to fake rice, the “rice” will emit a plastic or even sweet potato smell.  Yes, it will burn as you would imagine plastic would. So, for peace of mind – light it up.
