The Impact Of Storing Rice In The Ricecooker?
, I want to ask this … I heard from my friend that the rice stored in Ricecoocker can cause cancer huh?
The news that rice stored for a long time in rice cookers can cause cancer or other diseases such as diabetes is a myth. This news does not have a strong medical basis, so it cannot be considered true. Until now, there is no research that states that long cooked rice in a rice cooker is a cause of cancer.
The cause of cancer is still uncertain, some experts claim that viral infections, genetic mutations due to free radicals, are one of the possibilities for cancer cells to form. But even this still requires further research to be sure.
So you can still eat rice without worry.
Rice cooked in a rice cooker has nutritional value that is approximately the same as rice cooked traditionally.
However, during long heating in the warmer, the glycemic index (sugar content) value of the rice can increase due to prolonged heating causing a gelatinization effect on the rice.
But there are also other studies which suggest that this effect does not have a significant effect on sugar content in rice. That's why this condition requires further examination and research.
But for now, eating rice cooked in a rice cooker is just as safe as eating rice cooked traditionally.
I hope this helps.
