So, it follows that any food products made from rice also routinely contain some amount of arsenic. These include crackers, rice cakes, rice wine, rice flour, snack bars and cereals.
Arsenic is found in the environment as a naturally occurring substance, although its presence can also result from contamination by human activity. It can be found in soil, water, air and foods.
When it comes to rice, the most dangerous form of arsenic is inorganic arsenic. Rice happens to be one of the plants that is very adept at drawing inorganic arsenic up from water and soil, then storing it in the edible grain.
