Tired of fake people? Let me introduce to you fake food! According to the comments, these plastic rice are made in China but we never know. It could be made right outside our doors here in Malaysia. A page called Yesbook on Facebook has made a post featuring two videos that has proven so.
Recently there has been a rise in the food industry, where people find fake eggs made of plastic. You can almost tell, but only after a closer look, or through some methods. My friend has come across a plastic egg before. It didn’t look good, certainly looked fake. Consistent to what we already know, plastic isn’t biodegradable. Which is why we are also trying to reduce the use of bags, to reduce the damage we cause to the environment by littering them.
Apparently, just creating fake eggs isn’t enough. Fake rice has to be a part of the menu too.
Which isn’t surprising: the demand for food is high. The production however, is becoming more difficult by the day. Which is why people are trying to create meat out of DNA, not from livestocks. This is also to prevent the abuse of animals.
Regardless, we can’t turn a blind eye when it comes to food that aren’t livestocks, such as rice.
Here in this video, an Indian lady is showing how, when rolled into the ball, it becomes way too hard and bounces off a surface. Food can’t do that! Unless if they’re jelly. I don’t think even hard candy bounces right off the table.
Can our body digest that? For those who are curious, she mentioned that this is rice from a brand called Cap Rambutan.
Here’s another video, with the packet available for all to see:
