Some people say its fine. Some people say it'll give you food poisoning.
Whats your stance?
I'll let you know how it turns out.
judging by the advice in here, i'd suggest you go vom
He'll be spurting out his poochute like krakatoa within the hour anyway :)
(tbh, it is often fine to do this so long as it was stored quickly in the fridge and covered over. I would just never take the risk, and I speak as somebody who eats 3 day old pizza off the floor).
Never got ill from it.
Is probably not strong enough in evolutionary terms and should be allowed to die off.
I get ill from everything.
We'll be better off as a species for your demise though so take solace in that.
but I have done it. Got to sprinkle some water over it before you bung it in the microwave, that's key.
terrified of reheating rice
Same as anything innit
Should get it in the fridge straightaway, if you leave it out that's when the bacteria develops.
I always rinse cooked rice in cold water before putting it in the fridge
You should never put things in the fridge until they're fully cold
Perhaps stock up on loo roll now before it's too late?
cover tightly, put in the firdge and can consume for up to 24 hours if it has been properly reheated. if it's left out at room tempersature for more than hour, the spores that will have been produced won't be killed by any amount of aggressive reheating, not even microwave blitzing. And you will die, or at least your arse will.
I would not take the risk, ever, when it's very easy and cheap to make fresh rice.
Even after 2-3 days
Never ever became unwell after
Fuck you science
'bacillus cereus spores' and Lo! you will probably never eat rice again anyway.
I'll totally laugh when you all die.
I've never once reheated rice before now as my mum would never let us because she said we'd get food poisoning.
always best to be close to base camp when the D & V hits
The 'emetic' form is commonly caused by rice that is not cooked for a time and temperature sufficient to kill any spores present, then improperly refrigerated. It can produce a toxin, cereulide, which is not inactivated by later reheating. This form leads to nausea and vomiting 1–5 hours after consumption. It can be difficult to distinguish from other short-term bacterial food borne pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus.
you need to cool it quickly if you plan to either have it cold, or re-heat it.
NHS details here:
and always been fine. I have however been ill after a prawn curry once. MAYBE it was the rice, not the prawns???
They say unwashed veg is bad for food poisoning also don't they? Loads of us don't wash it, even though it has come from a muddy field straight to your plate via a cursory wash and a whole production / packaging / supermarket system which could be full of anything.
the pesticides will stop you from getting too ill.
if you whack it in the oven for 10 minutes with the rest of your curry then eat as seems warm enough you will get food poisoning and be put off ever reheating rice again (true story)
they use to say to cool rice before fridging but modern fridges can cool warm stuff much better so is best to put in fridge straight away apparently
Read the link with teh SICENCE> If you haven't cooled it properly and then stroed it in a properly chilled fridge for no more than 24 hours, then you would need to heat it to over 215 fahrenheit, and good luck with that unless you live near a power station.
You need to cook it properly in the first place, then cool and then cook again at that temp. if you haven't cooled it properly then the bacteria fomr the spores will have grown and you can't kill that with heat.
The first line of the wikipedia paragraph quoted up there is that spores are only a problem if you don't cook it enough to begin with. Boiling water for 10 minutes is enough. As long as you don't then leave the lid off the rice for hours at room temperature it will be fine.
The type of food poisoning you're describing is what you get from uncovered buffets that have been left for hours with no heating.
the spores can survive even after normal cooking. Ignore the wiki thread and go with the NHS recommendations.
to reduce the chances that they'll have to treat people with food poisoning who do it wrong.
Some spores might survive but it requires live bacteria to grow from the spores and go on to produce toxin for you to get ill. That process takes hours and can only happen if you're diabolically stupid with your rice storage.
I'd be far more worried about rice from takeaways than stuff you cook yourself tbh. You don't know how long that stuff has been sat around for.
The evidence of science disagrees wntirely with your positoin. Moreover, if you are immoncompromised, this type of bacterial food posioning could kill you. It's not scaremongering, it's a very real concern and very easily avpoided. As stated above, there have to be four elements to the process for you to escape the raging shits:
1. cook it to correct temperature oin first place
2. do not leave sitting around at room temp, other than to allow to cool (for no more than hour)
3. cover tightly and refidgerate for no more than 24 hours
4. reheat thoroughly.
it's not ok to do just number 4 or number 2. you need to do all of the above, and even then you may be unlucky as this is a virulent bacteria which grows form spores that are present on a huge amount of rice.
immuno-compromised. so, anybody with a chronic health condition, pregnant women, the elderly, post-operative recuperants etc. If you have chrohns or colitis, e.g., this kind of poisoning could set you back for months, potentially years. It's been known to be too miuch for weak and elderly people and people have died.
Fair enough if you're a healthy,marathon running BURMA then you might just get a bit of a tummy rumble and think no more of it, but it has been known to have severe and serious health efffects on people who had latent conditoins and ended up really unwell, and I can't fathom why people would be so lazy and tick as to ignore the evidence when it's so easily avpoided. Anyway, i'm going for my lunchtime gin and cigarette.
All the stuff I've read (I've wasted by lunch break) is suggesting the long-term storage at room temperature is the problem here, not reheating last night's tea that's been in the fridge as Meo did.
and mix it with your reheated curry/main dish on the plate
I've been doing it for years and years.
It's not meat, I can't see the problem.
Most meat is arguably safer. Just people suffering from ignorance. The fact is, it's not in most cases going to make you as sick as the worst case scenario, more just giving you an upset tummy for a day or so - there are worse food poisonings out there - but the reason it just seems so silly is that it's totally avoidable.
'its the rice that'll give you food poisoning more than the meat'
and then one day it makes you really sick and you're like why the fuck did i do it when i've been told not to!?
it's never happened to me yet though bye
As bacteria might die when reheated but cold it'll still be there?
I reckon you could eat arsenic after 20 minutes on full whack
if you refrigerate it soon after cooking it's ok.
i never heed this advice though. eat a lot of rice and generally just leave it in a pan overnight in the kitchen then reheat the next day. never had any problems but i have a strong constitution and this is dis so proceed with caution i guess guys.
As long as youve put the rice to be reheated in with some new unboiled rice first. The new rice absorbs all the potential bad stuff from the old rice, and then the new rice will be ok because you boil the bad stuff off.
I'm pretty sure I've eaten rice which has been in the fridge for DAYS and I've been fine. Probably didn't even heat it through properly either.
Though I do have a cast iron stomach.
which means I always get the leftover curry and rice the next day because I have no issues with it. Eat loads of reheated rice at work, am quite lax when it comes to getting the leftovers in the fridge, never gotten ill. Take that, science.
because i'm not a gypsy, so would just make more rice
No wonder these clatty bastards never seem to get ill, when they probably have asbestos lined stomachs from the shite they eat, eurgh.
and have to be painstakingly careful about what I eat.
Get an immune system, idiots.
and am extremely lax in most regards when it comes to food safety, but this is not one i'm willing to take a chance with, and I say that as somebody who has a robust immune system. Also, your post is really outrageously offensive to peopel who post opn there who for whatever reason are immunocompromised and have to live with that. I'm sure they'd take being a crashing great mouth-breathing diddy, just to swap with you for a week and eat your manky, crawling rice.
references within the thread to me being concenred about this and then going off for a fag.
THis place has died for me. Like CG's arse is just about to.
just to cover themselves, and because they need to protect young people and the elderly from food poisoning. That is why people end up sticking food temperature probes into pizzas and chicken nuggets and stupid shit like that. You will be fine, maybe one time in 1000 you may have an issue, but then you might have been in contact with some salmonella lurking on a sandwich wrapper and get ill from that, that doesn't mean you should scrub your hands every 5 minutes.
are ken hom and ching he huang trying to kill me?
but Ken Hom will stop at nothing to kill you.
is the advice I heard.
But I'm a veggie, so whatever.
1. Cook your rice-centric tea.
2. Put some in the lock n lock, with the lid off, to cool.
3. Put it in the fridge before going to bed.
4. Take it to work the next day.
5. Store it in the fridge.
6. Three minutes in the microwave.
7. Win at life.
Sometimes I don't bother with the microwave. Cold curry can be nice.
If reheating, I wouldn't leave our any layer than the day after the day after.
If eating cold, I wouldn't leave our any longer than the day after.
2-3 times a week for the last 7 years in my tupperwear lunches...never had an issue
just make fresh rice
just sing the blues
if you believe some of the people (probably literally) shitting themselves in this thread about completely standard rice consumption.
The sense of urgency in POs posts, in particular, is palpable.
This case has just been blown WIDE OPEN
put a wet mobile phone in it
Theo, shut it down.
Hotly debated food threads are what keeps this site going.
But I made bolognese on Sunday, and that's just sitting in the Le Creuset on the hob. Wouldn't ever bother with the fridge unless it was a really hot day. I'm not dead yet.
this is the worst thread in months
Not even veiled at all actually. Braggy twat.
along with the "I've got a modern fridge" boasting up thread, shameful
involves reheating precooked rice in a microwave throughout the day/night
I hope she's okay.
I was a little constipated but have since pooped a little. RELATED?!?!? !?!?
1. I'm at work - no hob
2. I ain't no povvo buying microwave rice
3. Its brown rice - took 25 minutes to cook in the first place.
uncle ben can get to fuck
tastes pretty much the same, looks different
you've been tricked there's no such thing
RICE KNOWING YOU!!!111111
I eat leftover rice every week pretty much for lunch (that I cooked the night before). I take it out of the fridge at home at like 8am, leave it in my bag until I eat lunch at like 1pm. Room temperature for 5 hours. I've done this for at least ten years without ever getting sick. The odds are so low, who gives a shit.
It's kills the bacteria.
