American experts from the University of North Carolina found a side effect of eating rice that many people don’t even think about. Unexpected side effect of rice According to scientists, cooked rice can be toxic to the body. If it has been stored at room temperature for a long time, you should not eat it – in this case, the probability of poisoning increases sharply, according to the researchers.

Bacteria can be found in rice, say scientists. Bacteria of the type Bacillus cereus, penetrating from the soil, are most often found in it. After experimenting with different ways of cooking rice, the researchers discovered that heat treatment did not always destroy all the microorganisms living in the rice. If bacterial spores that survive after cooking enter the human body with food, this can cause a serious deterioration in well-being. The activity of bacteria is accompanied by the release of toxins, including thermostable ones, which provokes the symptoms of poisoning. According to experts, within two hours after cooking, rice should be placed in the refrigerator – otherwise the risk of poisoning will be very high.

“Bacterial spores are able to survive cooking rice if it is normally stored at room temperature after cooking. In this case, the spores grow and multiply,” the authors of the scientific project point out.
