Arsenic in rice and rice products
 
An important study for adults and children. Arsenic was even found in organic baby cereal. :(

The brand we eat isn't listed. But we only eat Jasmine Rice. Of all the ones listed Jasmine seems to have one of the lowest amounts. Which is a very good thing considering the amount of rice we eat in our house! It is cheap and can be added to just about any meal to make it go further.

I hear you! We eat a lot of rice, too-- and a lot of jasmine. Just something to be aware of, especially given that babies are so small.

Quickest way to take care of things like this is not government regulations. It's consumers refusing to purchase from companies like this. Hit them in the pocket and it usually takes care of it.

This is what our family does. We will not buy from a company that is poisoning us.

I second all that! Most companies are poisoning us. With all the gmo foods and false organic, you really never know what you get. Even when they claim to be non gmo there can be cross polination. I say if you can grow your own foods and get your seeds from the food that you have grown then great. I wish I could. I have gone to the limits to make sure we eat so healthy and in the process of doing this, I have stressed out so much that I feel like I have wasted so much time trying to be healthy that I have taken years off my life instead of added to it.

Thank you for sharing this. I have a 3 month old and so I was grateful to get some information about the baby rice cereals. Also, I was surprised to find that brown rice had higher levels of arsenic than white rice? I never would have guessed this.

It kind of scares me to know that they would put this in rice. I mean who came up with that bright idea. We eat a lot of rice in this house, so now i feel like i need to find something as an alternative or a brand that doesn't have this in it. . . if there is one.
