I have never heard of Red Rice before but then I never thought that in this country people could be throwing up and getting sick after eating tomatoes.
According to the latest report released by Consumer Lab, the organization tested 10 varieties of red yeast rice found that level of statin compound varied by more than 100 fold and in addition to this, 4 of the varities tested contained potentially toxic contaminant – citrinin.
Red rice is made through a fermentation process (isn’t that how beer is made as well?).
I still don’t know what this is, but I would stay as far away as possible and I recommend you follow the same.
The problems and scare tactics of salmonella inefcted are still fresh in the American mind. With FDA totally clueless so far about the infection outbreak crisis, its better everybody take precaution in their own hands and be careful about what they ingest.
