Rice is the staple diet for more than half of the world’s population and is consumed principally in Asia. Rice forms up to 80 percent of the food intake in some countries. It is cooked in boiling water and eaten mostly with cooked pulses, vegetables, fish or meat. In India, several types of dishes are prepared from rice flavoured with spices and other ingredients. Other rice preparations include parched rice, puffed rice, and fermented preparations like ‘idli’ and ‘dosa’. Because of the shortage of rice and its high price, it finds limited industrial applications. Byproducts of rice, such as bran, rice polishing and paddy straw are used for feeding livestock.
