Last month K found a small stone in amongst some ABC brown rice she had just cooked for us. She actually bit down on it but luckily did no damage to her teeth. We put it down to a fluke and thought no more of it. Until yesterday.
Last night we found not one, but TWO pebbles in a single bag of rice!Here is a scan of them with a one dinar coin for scale. They look like they may be pieces of pumice.
This is the exact product:
This brand of rice is excellent, but after shattering a tooth on an olive stone left in a salad by a fearless pizzeria (this is a hint) I can assure you that you do not want to risk chewing on one of these stones.
Since this rice is only packaged here, the local company may not even know about the stones. I will be writing to them this week to ask them if they know about it and if they will investigate.
In the meantime, if you are using ABC brown rice, chew slowly and carefully, I am serious.
PS. Destoning is a key part of the rice milling process. It is clearly not that effective with this wholegrain rice.
