Has the Fake Plastic Rice from China entered North East?

fake rice in north east india

According to the report from one of the Chinese web portal www.shanghaiist.com, plastic rice sold on the Chinese market has reportedly found its way into various Asian countries, including India, Indonesia and Vietnam.

The fake rice is made by mixing potatoes, sweet potatoes and synthetic resin, according to the International Business Times. It’s long been circulating on the market in Taiyuan, Shaanxi and appears identical to natural rice.

Health experts have warned that consuming the fake grains could seriously damage the digestive system.

With Manipur having porous boundary with Myanmar, transportation of the said rice through Moreh from Myanmar side will be an easy one. Once it enters Manipur, landing up on all the other North East states will not be a problem. And with no proper security and surveillance system to check the compliance of the food safety standards, it will literally be impossible to check the spread of the plastic rice.

So how can you avoid consuming plastic-tainted rice? According to Oryza.com, the fake rice grains remain hard after being boiled, and the soup made by it forms a very unappetizing plastic sheath ‘that burns like plastic’ when heated up.
