3 rice cakes fail

We all know this: We’re on the road and suddenly we’re hungry. Many people then turn to rice cakes, which have a healthy reputation for being low in calories and fat. People who care about their calorie intake love to have a popular snack. But consumption can have a negative effect on our health, as the Öko-Test has now shown.

It has been tested

Rice cakes specially formulated for infants and young children as well as nine organic products with no indication of age were screened in a single test. Tested for content of toxic elements such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mold toxins, mineral oil components, pesticides and acrylamide contaminants.

A scary result: all products contain harmful substances. Only one product was rated ‘satisfactory’, two were rated ‘poor’ and the rest even ‘inadequate’. It is suspected that the contained substances have a detrimental effect on the body: the consumption of arsenic can increase the risk of developing cancer in the long term, cadmium harms the kidneys and can impair reproduction, and mold has a mutagenic effect.
