(food-related) Question for the DiS brain trust


#1

It’s generally accepted that eating leftover rice is a no-no after a day or so. So why is it ok to re-heat those instant-rice pouches? they’ve been pre-cooked.


#2

Not sure about the rice pouches but if you’re making proper egg fried rice then it’s usually done with rice that was cooked the day before.


#3

Eating left over rice is fine providing you stick it in the fridge shortly after its been cooked


#4

#5

i did this, but now my question is - if i carry it around in a lunchbox for the day is it still ok to eat


#6

I wouldn’t reccomend it as leaving rice in room temperature is when the bacteria that causes the food poisoning with rice spreads.


#7

Guess they’ve been cooked and cooled in a way that means they can be then eaten at room temp.

As someone.who had been very ill from rice based reheating I don’t do it.

I do often tip pouches into a salad and eat at room temp…is fine.


#8

content not available - is there some kind of way that they make the pouch rice free of the bacteria issue?
i microwaved some instant rice last night and left it in the fridge overnight but now i’m wondering if i should eat it (been in a lunchbox since morning). It was instant rice if that makes any difference


#9

They remove the bacteria from the rice so it shouldn’t be contaminated


#10

ah nice. cheers!


#11

Is it not that the bacteria can only spread/form/whatever in open conditions over 5°?

If so they probably cool and vacumn pack, no?


#12

i think they put the rice in a bowl of rice


#13

Really dislike those rice pouches, it’s like the rice is covered in a slimy film


#14

Like Ghostbusters?
