Delhi restaurant serves plastic rice, picture goes viral
In yet another incident, Delhi restaurant has served plastic rice claimed by a woman who ordered rice and curry at the famous restaurant, Bengali sweets at Central Delhi’s Gol Market. On consuming the rice, the woman claimed that the rice being served was ‘plastic rice’. She also went ahead and demonstrated the bouncing of the rice ball. According to an expert it was found that it is practically not possible for a person to prepare rice from plastic since plastic cannot absorb water. He further added that the reason why few rice balls bounced and rest didn’t was because of the amount of amylose (starch) present in the rice; that is less amount of starch would lead to sticking of rice particles together. Therefore, in the investigation it came forward that the bounce in the rice has got nothing to do with them being made of plastic.
