Arsenic Levels

Arsenic Levels

Arsenic is a common mineral in the soil and water due to the use of pesticides and fertilizers. Some plants take up less, some plants take up more.                                                                      
Consumer Reports found measurable levels of arsenic in almost all the 60 rice types it checked, noting that the mineral is also found in rice pasta, drinks and cereals. The worst offender is brown rice, which has highest concentration of inorganic arsenic. Studies have found that the basmatic white rice grown in India, where our rice is from, has one of the the lowest concentration of arsenic.

To reduce arsenic level in rice, soak rice in water, drain the rice and rinse rice thoroughly with fresh water.

Arsenic test has shown our rice is < 0.2 ppm (parts per million)  (Stay tune for a more detailed report here)

The European Safe Food Authority (EFSA) implemented  standards for the Maximum Level (ML)of inorganic arsenic in rice products sold in the European Union.  These standards are 0.25 ppm  in brown rice (husked rice) or parboiled rice, and 0.20 ppm in white rice (polished rice).
