Does Rice Cause Cough?

No, rice does not cause coughing. Coughing is typically triggered by irritation in the throat, airways, or lungs, often due to factors such as infections, allergies, irritants, or other medical conditions.

Rice is a staple food and is generally not associated with causing coughing. It is a carbohydrate-rich food that is easy to digest for most people. However, if rice is consumed in a way that leads to choking or aspiration (inhaling food or liquid into the airway), it could potentially trigger a coughing reflex as the body attempts to clear the airway.

If you are experiencing persistent or severe coughing, it’s important to consult a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.
