Rice is one of the leading food crops in the world, nutritious, versatile, and gluten-free. The functional properties of rice are affected by the milling process. Using a mix of lecture and lab work, this course will provide information and hands-on experience about the processing steps of milling and determination of milling degree. The structure and composition of a rice kernel and the physicochemical properties of kernel constituents will also be discussed.
