sIt almost always fails to measure rice. In the vast majority of cases, there is plenty left. The solution is to use the rice in another meal. Be warned, if you are going to reheat the rice, know that you may not be doing the best thing for your health.
According to the UK’s National Health Service, cited here by CNET, it’s possible to get food poisoning from reheated rice. He explains that all varieties of rice contain Bacillus cereus bacteria, which can cause digestive problems.
These bacteria can be reactivated when the rice cools. The danger is as the days go by, bacteria can multiply. The problem does not appear when eating rice immediately after cooking it.
Problems can occur later if the rice is left for an hour or two at room temperature. According to the National Health Service, it’s best not to reheat it.
Still, there is a way to keep it safe. To avoid poisoning, rice should be stored in the refrigerator immediately after it has been cooked and thus limit the time the rice remains at a temperature more favorable to the emergence of bacteria. You shouldn’t keep it more than a day, that’s another piece of advice.
Always be the first to know.
