Rice is widespread all over the world and is also a staple food in most of the areas of the earth. Nowadays we are eating rice without knowing the authenticity of it because you barely can distinguish a real grain of rice from a fake one. Because they both look familiar it becomes hard to distinguish between the both. China has come up with the production of fake rice and circulating the fake grains in the market. The price of such grains of rice is much lower than the rates of an original grain of rice. The rice is made up of plastic components which can, in the long run, turn out to be harmful to your body.
There are many kinds of coffee blends throughout the world. It helps you to stay up late at night when you need to. An original ground coffee tastes different than what we get in the supermarkets. The products produced by the manufacturers come in and are packaged after several mixing processes.

Real coffee is used in small quantities and the maximum part which we brew is added preservatives and flavours thus explaining the price cut of the product.
Ground spices to be particular, it becomes hard to differentiate and separate the different spices mixed up in them unless a professional comes to help. Ground spices often contain ground barks of the tree instead of cinnamon or an ordinarily dried leaf instead of bay leaves. Such deception is brought in by the spice industries to cut down the costs of production but earns profits by the sale of deceptive spices in the market.
