But many of us, without suspecting it, consume arsenic, however, in microdoses. It turns out that it is found in some types of rice flakes, popped rice, muesli bars and energy drinks. The thing is in a special form of sugar substitute - brown rice syrup, which is added to a number of products, reports the portal MEDdaily with reference to News.Discovery. As a group of experts led by Brian Jackson, a chemist from Dartmouth College, found out, the presence of this sugar substitute significantly increases the concentration of arsenic in the final product. What to do?
• Parents do not get involved in artificial infant formulas containing rice or rice syrup.
• Avoid products with sugar substitutes - small amounts of natural sugar are much less harmful!
• Do not panic for no reason, since arsenic does not accumulate in the body, such as lead or mercury.
