Beware: Plastic Rice From China is Spreading Across Asia
We’ve heard about artificial eggs and walnuts coming from China, and now we have news of fake rice which showed on the social media platforms and it is believed that the rice reached Singapore.
This product is sold on the Chinese markets, but it also found its way to some Asian countries like India, Vietnam, and Indonesia. According to consumers, this plastic rice can be found in many well-known brands and many consumers actually have reported that plastic rice causes gastritis and different stomach related diseases after its consummation.

The fake rice from China has been denied by the Agro-based Industry Ministry and Malaysian Agriculture. Nevertheless, if the fake rice found its way to Malaysia, then it is most probably bought in small shops rather than in large supermarkets as the hoax has been circulating on Taiyuan Shaanxi’s markets.
But how can we avoid buying such rice? Its appearance is hardly noticeable when uncooked as it is identical to the natural rice, but once it is cooked, the fake rice remains in hard form. So if you use it to make a soup, it will form a noticeable plastic sheath which if you set it on fire, it will burn as it was plain plastic.
