Hello,

I am new to the group/Forum.  I read the information below regarding the affects of Rice, included in a gluten free diet.  I am very concerned after reading the information regarding Rice having high levels of Arsenic and Mercury.  I use rice product in my every day preparation of meals.  I would like to know more about the affects of eating rice and any diet recommendations.  I would appreciate your review and reply.  Thank you.

Like you, I am concerned about arsenic in rice products.  But I have used common sense in keeping my family safe.  We use other grains or starches beside rice.  I purchase rice from California and soak and wash it well (I still prefer steaming).  Here is more information from the Gluten Free Watch Dog that should set your mind at ease or show you how to work with rice:
