  1. Rice bran has been a significant part of my daily multi-bran hot cereal for over two decades, and I am very happy to have organic rice bran again available. I ordered a case as soon as I heard it was available and have been enjoying it every morning.

    I am concerned, though, about reports of a high concentration of arsenic in rice bran. This appears to be especially true of rice grown in farms in places such as Missisippi and Arkansas where arsenic was used as a pesticide for cotton farming. Apparently soil must be tested for arsenic before certification of crops as organic. So a question I have for Shiloh Farms is how stringent is the soil testing for arsenic at the farm where the rice crop used for the organic rice bran is grown? Does the rice bran come from a farm that previously used a pesticide containing arsenic?

    It would be very helpful to have chemical analyses for arsenic done on samples of Shiloh Farms Rice Bran. No tolerable upper limit has been set in the US for dietary arsenic, and there is some evidence from animal studies that trace amounts might be needed for optimal health. Still, having solid knowledge of the amont would be reassuring.

  2. Did Shiloh Farm reply to Ted’s comment about the arsenic levels in the soil in which the organic rice bran was grown? I, too, would like to be able to see an independent study on the level of arsenic in this product before purchasing it.
