Studies confirm that using tap water to cook rice is safe, as the level of chemical compounds present no health effects.

The Metropolitan Waterworks Authority, the Provincial Waterworks Authority, and the National Food Institute revealed the findings of the study which reported 70-73 micrograms of Trihalomethanes per liter, far below water standards set by the United States of 80 micrograms as well as Japan at 100 micrograms.

The officials affirmed that the tests have sampled water sources as well as the byproduct of waterworks and assured the public that the use of tap water to cook rice is a safe practice.
