Abstract [en]

This study investigates the Arsenic (As) concentration in different types of brown rice grain and assesses As exposure and non-cancer health risk from rice consumption. Daily Intake (DI rice) and Hazard Quotient (HQ) from rice were calculated for the people who are consuming these type of rice. Daily intake value of As from rice was compared with previous WHO recommended Provisional Tolerable Daily Intake value (PTDI) of 2.1 ÎŒg/day/kg bw to understand which kind of rice may pose potential health risk. Hazard quotient (HQ) was determined to understand the potential non-cancer health risk of the people who are consuming these rice. This study indicates that for SB brown rice consumer in 29% cases DI rice exceeds the previous PTDI value and 100% cases HQ value exceeds 1.
