With all the recent news about rice and arsenic (you are now supposed to wash rice before cooking to remove some of the arsenic) and, more recently, the rice from China and Taiwan that is contamined with lead.... are gluten-free products containing rice (rice flour, starch, etc) safe to consume??

Rice seems to be one of the most commmon "substitute grains/carbs" (along with potatoes)... I'm wondering if the processing of rice when gluten-free packaged foods are made makes it safer, or would it sill be unsafe to eat??

 

Apologies if this has already been asked... I didnt' see anything on a quick search.

Thanks. Doesn't really definitively answer anything, but makes me feel even more unsure about eating the rice-based products. :(

I guess we'll all die form smoething eventually, but I really don't want to eat something that I know could potentially be poisoning my body. Argh.
