Rice inhibits intestinal secretions.

Abstract

Rice-based oral rehydration solutions have been found to be effective in decreasing stool output and improving intestinal absorption in acute infectious diarrhea. Recent tests of the ability of a rice extract to inhibit intestinal secretions were undertaken, and it was shown that an isolated fraction of rice extract decreased intestinal losses by actively inhibiting the chloride channel.
