We have monitored Arsenic (As) content of 200 white rice samples and 100 brown rice samples produced in Korea. The total arsenic content in samples was analyzed by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry ICP-MS after microwave assisted digestion. Arsenic speciation i.e. AsIII, AsV, DMA, MMA was determined by wet-sonication and HPLC-ICP-MS. The major compound among As species in rice is an inorganic arsenic (AsIII, AsV). The proportion of inorganic As/total As is respectively 68.45% in white rice and 72.46% in brown rice. We confirmed that all white rice samples were lower than CODEX standard (0.2 mg/kg).
