Is It Safe to Reheat the Rest of the Rice?
When lazy to spend time cooking in the kitchen, we often choose to reheat some of the leftovers we have. However, many opinions circulating heating rice or foods made from rice can make health a question.

Heating rice is also believed to cause food poisoning. Then, what do the experts say about this? According to the NHS, rice can be reheated after cooking, but not for a long time.

Rice should be eaten immediately after cooking. However, if we don't eat it immediately, make sure you don't keep it too long. Do not store rice more than one day before heating it again. In addition, do not heat the rice more than once. We also have to make sure the rice that we will consume again is hot.

If we experience food poisoning after consuming heated rice, this is most likely due to the presence of Bacillus Cereus bacteria. Cooking rice does not always kill bacteria. So, when rice is left to cool at room temperature, Bacillus cereus can multiply and is dangerous if consumed.

Symptoms that occur due to poisoning usually begin to appear after one to five hours. These symptoms are usually in the form of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea which lasts about a day.
