Abstract Rice ageing is a complicated process, which involves changes in physical and chemical properties of the rice grain. Starch, protein and lipids are the main rice grain components which affect cooking and eating quality. While the overall starch, protein and lipid contents in the rice grain remain essentially unchanged during storage, structural changes do occur. These changes affect the pasting and gel properties, flavour and texture of cooked rice. This paper reviews research on the…

Effects of Rice Aging on Its Main Nutrients and Quality Characters
The main nutrients in rice are starch, protein and lipids, and their contents and physicochemical properties have important effects on rice qualities, which could provide reference for solving the problem of rice quality decline during storage.
Effect of aging on changes in rice physical qualities.
Rice ageing commences during preharvest and continues with the postharvest storage. It dramatically involves the changes in physical and physicochemical properties of the rice grain such as cooking,
Effect of ageing process on rice physicochemical and digestion properties
Three rice cultivarswith different amylose contentswere used for studying the effect of storage on rice structure and digestion behaviours. The amount of cellwall remnants of rice stored at 37i‚°C
Impact of Postharvest Operations on Rice Grain Quality: A Review.
The evidence supporting attribution of grain quality changes induced by postharvest processes to changes in the physical properties and chemical composition of the rice grain (starch, protein, lipids, and antioxidants) is outlined.


Changes in Physicochemical Properties of Rice during Storage
The changes in the physicochemical properties of rices which had different amylose contents were studied when the rice was stored at 2°C and 29°C as rough rice, milled rice, defatted milled rice, and
The relative effects of enzymatic and physical changes during storage on the culinary properties of rice.
The amylases were destroyed during the first 5 minutes of cooking milled rice grains, but the solids extracted by the cooking water continued to increase as cooking progressed. The inhibition of
Effect of the Change During Storage in Lipid Composition of Rice on its Amylogram
There are many reports on the deterioration during storage of rice flavor, but no work has yet been done to relate the change during storage in rheological properties with the change in lipid
Physico-ecological Studies on Quality Formation of Rice Kernel : IV. Effect of storage on eating quality of rice
The texture of cooked rice became harder and less sticky after being stored at higher temperatures and moisture contents for 90 days and the pH in the cooking liquid decreased, which seemed related to the deterioration of the taste of rice.
Effects of Rough Rice Drying and Storage Conditions on Sensory Profiles of Cooked Rice
ABSTRACT In both domestic and international markets, the end-use quality of rice affects its market value and acceptability to consumers. The effect of various postharvest processing treatments on
Monthly texture assessments of seven milled rices, differing in amylose content and stored at 28–30°C, verified that three months was the minimum storage period for major changes to occur in hardness
Sensory quality of cooked long-grain rice as affected by rough rice moisture content, storage temperature, and storage duration.
ABSTRACT The effects of postharvest conditions (i.e., rough rice moisture content, storage temperature, and storage duration) on sensory quality of one longgrain rice cultivar grown in Arkansas
Texture determinants of cooked, parboiled rice. II: Physicochemical properties and leaching behaviour of rice
This paper reports the pasting, gelatinisation and leaching behaviour of 11 cultivars of rice, the starch structural properties of which were determined in the preceding paper. The results show that
Changes in the physicochemical properties of rice with aging
7 var. of rice belonging to dwarf indica, tall indica and japonica classes were stored as paddy as well as milled rice at 1-3 degree C, room temp. (RT) and 37-40 degree C in the dark and also at RT
