(Silly) question about ingesting soap.

cresyd | Sep 17, 201407:36 AM     40

Last night I made some rice, and clearly hadn't rinsed all the dish soap out of the pot. While it wasn't like there was foaming soap, there was definitely a bit of an after taste. Then last night/this morning I had a truly awful stomach ache that so far Pepto has appeared to mollify.

So the question is this - aside from the obvious of not serving this to anyone - is there a level of how much incidental digested soap before it becomes a problem? I've also been traveling a lot recently, so I'm totally open to this having no connection to eating soap. But for future reference, should something like this happen again - should I have just tossed the rice as being totally inedible/bad for me?
