Hot rice from cold water

A company in Japan recently demonstrated to the public its new self-heating rice. Intended primarily as a post-disaster emergency food, the product consists of pressurized cooked rice with an exothermic agent that generates heat when water is poured into the container, as the nervous-looking gentleman is doing in the photo below.

It sounds useful, but let's hope that self-heating rice works out better than those self-heating lattes did.

"Uh, guys... What if it starts some sort of chain reaction?"
