RICE PROCESSING FLOW CHART
Processing of rice involves a number of steps starting right from the time it reaches rice mill or rice processing plant. As soon as rice arrives from the field, it is de husked by a rubber roll sheller producing brown rice. This is followed by the stage, where the husk is removed without affecting the nutritional composition of the grain.
Since there are three types of rice - White Rice, esteemed rice and Parboiled Rice, the processing of rice depends upon the type of rice to be produced.
In the case of white rice, after de husking the brown rice is milled to produce white rice. Milling of brown rice involves removal of the outer bran layers of the grain which are darker in colour and are rich in nutrients such as vitamin-B.
The next step involves polishing of rice - and it is the type of polishing that determines the quality of rice. For example, double-polish, silky polish or regular polish gives rice grains a cleaner, brighter and shiny look.
However, the average grain length (AGL) is specified prior to the milling of rice and at the same time entails the broken percentage - be it 1%, 2%, 5%, 10%, 25%, 100% broken or as desired by the buyer.
While that is so in the case of brown rice, parboiled rice is obtained by means of steam pressure process prior to milling. In this case, rice is parboiled in the hull, which softens the kernel, allowing the surface starch, bran and other components to commingle. This is followed by the drainage of water and after that rice is carefully steam dried. The dried parboiled rice is passed through machines, which remove the hull and polish the kernels.
The paddy is passed between two rubber rollers, which splits the hull open and release the grain. While one-roll spins faster as compared to the other one, tightly pressing against the rice from both sides and strip the husk off.
This is one stage, where rice is passed through a specific gravity table that separates the product on the basis of density. In other words, here, the stones are separated from the rice.
The paddy separator removes bran layer from brown rice. We have the most advanced multi-break vertical whiteners that use both abrasion and friction to gently convert brown rice into milled white kernels. We use Satake Machine for the de-husking of paddy.
Milling is one of the most crucial factors in rice processing, as it the stage where grains are smoothened as well as it also involves the brightening of the surface rice grain. We have fully automated machinery for the superfine polishing of rice grains.
We use worldclass sorting machines for final quality control and enhancement step in the rice mill. Discoloured grains and optionally chalky kernels are removed to yield a first grade product.
We excel in providing consumer packing & bulk packing of the Indian Rice ranging from 1kg to 50 kg. Some of the weight specifications are ½ Kg, 1Kg, 2Kg,5Kg, 10Kg,20Kg,25 Kg. The Rice is packed in the below mentioned packages to prevent the rice from external contaminants and damage during transportation. Fabric Bags, Laminate Pouches, Tyvek, Cartons, Poly Jars, Jute bags.
We have huge warehouse facility to hold massive stock of all kinds of Basmati and Non-Basmati rice. The warehouses are well-maintained and well-furnished to sustain the quality standards during the period of storage. In fact, the large stock of products has helped us to cater to the demands of the customers even in the period of crisis.
