I had never heard of this arsenic problem so did a short google search just to fact check and was shocked at the huge amt of hits (mostly news stories but I am sure I will find some science in there someplace). Living in the rural areas south and west of Houston for the last 3 decades (big rice farming area) there is seldom a meal without some form of rice on the table (even breakfast as we sometimes eat it like oatmeal with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins).

Just to add onto CP's suggestions.....   I know it sounds like cheating but in the beginning I would find a product that IMO was a good idea but did not hit my palette exactly right and then recreate with my own twists and tweaks.

The only solution I could offer at this late date is to promote those 2 experienced servers to team captains and have a couple of days of intense training. If they don't already have some sort of SOP packet have the captains try to dig a few up online and mix and match, add in the menu with descriptions and print that out. Hand those out...
The easiest way IMO is tossing the dried pod in at the beginning and pulling it to scrape as soon as it is rehydrated. I don't throw the empty pod away tho...I add back in along with the seeds.   mimi

I may have mentioned this before but their "banana crème" flavor will really make a banana bread or cake "pop". Great brand.   mimi
