Srettha Thavisin, the prime minister, has declared the taste of the 10-year-old rice kept in Surin province’s stores “delicious.”

The leading had lunch with his team at Government House on Thursday, and the decade-old wheat was on the menu. Six sides were included, including khai look khoei, a deep-fried boiled egg served with wonderful fish sauce glaze, and stir-fried chicken served with basil and green curry.

A cause said that the leading said it was “delicious”.

When questioned about how many times the corn had been washed prior to cooking, the source said nothing.

Eventually, the chef explained to the media that the grain had a regular flavor. But the color was not as bright as fresh rice, he said, while adding that nevertheless, there was no distinction.

Commerce Minister Phumtham Wechayachai led a group of about 30 people, including members of the media, to examine the corn that has been stored in two warehouses for ten years since the disputed rice-pledging structure of the Yingluck Shinawatra government’s government’s questionable visit to Surin on Monday.

The grain, which had been washed up to 15 days before cooking, was also eaten by Mr. Phumtham. When asked about the public’s concerns about arsenic and potential cancer-causing chemical contaminants, Mr. Phumtham claimed on Thursday that he had already established that the grain was edible.

” The wheat may be a little reddish, but it’s still in excellent condition after cooking.” No single complained about its taste”, he said.

When asked if the 15, 000 tonnes of wheat would be exported or given to the Thai people, Mr. Phumtham responded that although there is demand for older rice in Africa, the quantity is insufficient for an trade shipment.

Defence Minister Sutin Klungsang, who praised the ministry’s plan to purchase the decade-old corn for soldiers, said the armed troops will be more than happy to help get it if it is proven to be of high quality.

According to Mr. Sutin, the armed forces have occasionally assisted in buying wheat and fruit from farmers during times when prices have fallen according to an oversupply.

” As for the value of the corn, we will see if claims of the great value are to be believed”, he said. ” Although Mr Phumtham’s tasting the corn could ensure the rice’s value to some extent, a formal evaluation on the rice’s excellent may take more self-confidence”.

The minister acknowledged that he had no idea whether bartering may be done using grain from the decade-old pledging scheme. It’s thought that the navy’s underwater procurement initiative might involve a request for Thai agricultural products from China.

” Well, I do n’t know. If they want it we may give it to them”, said Mr Sutin, referring to the Chinese government.
