Cornucopia asks consumers to be aware that rice products, including rice-based beverages, may contain the heavy metal arsenic in quantities that are harmful to human health. Due to a number of factors associated with arsenic levels in rice products (type of rice used, location grown, production methods, etc.), it is difficult to identify a safe level of consumption for rice-based beverages. It should be noted, only a very small amount of rice is actually used in rice-based beverages. For general guidelines and more background on this issue, we suggest reviewing Consumers Union’s 2014 report – https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2015/01/how-much-arsenic-is-in-your-rice/index.htm.
