Quality analysis in rice

  1. 1. WELCOME WELCOME
  2. 2. QUALITY ANALYSIS IN RICE: PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS Presented by: K . Vijay reddy
  3. 3. • Micronutrients are known to play an important role in the metabolism and physiological activities of the human body. Unfortunately, over three billion people in the world are malnourished. • The development of crops with enhanced mineral concentration is one of the most sustainable and cost effective approaches for alleviating micronutrient malnutrition. • Bio fortification is considered as a suitable strategy of increasing the bio available concentrations of an element in edible portions of crop plants through traditional breeding practices or modern biotechnology to overcome the problem of micronutrient deficiencies.
  4. 4. • Iron • Zinc • Vitamin A (Retinol) • Vitamin B9 (Folic acid / Folate)
  5. 5. Iron deficiency • Iron is important co factor of various enzymes for basic functions in humans • Affecting mainly – children under 5yrs & – poor women of childbearing age • Symptoms – poor mental development – depressed immune function to anaemia
  6. 6. Iron deficiency • In childhood impairs – physical growth, – mental development, and – learning ability. • In adults, – it reduces the ability to do physical labour. • Severe anemia increases the risk of death for women in childbirth.
  7. 7. Zinc deficiency • Fifth major cause of diseases and deaths in these countries. • Health problems caused by zinc deficiency include o anorexia, o dwarfism, o weak immune system, o skin lesions, o hypogonadism and o diarrhea
  8. 8. Vitamin A deficiency • A serious public health problem – in developing world, – particularly in Africa and South East Asia. • Globally, 3 million preschool aged children - visible eye damage • Annually, – an estimated 2,50,000 to 5,00000 preschool children go blind – approximately two-thirds of these children die within months of going blind
  9. 9. • Nearly 9 billion children die from malnutrition each year • Symptoms include; • night blindness, • increased susceptibility to infection and cancer, • anemia (lack of red blood cells or haemoglobin), • deterioration of the eye tissue, and • cardiovascular disease Vitamin A deficiency
  10. 10. • Widespread, especially in developing countries. • Results in serious disorders, including • neural tube defects such as spina bifida in infants and • megaloblastic anemia • A large proportion of these children die from common illness that could have been avoid through adequate nutrition
  11. 11. Why in rice? A staple food crop for >1 billion poor people Supplies 30-50% of the daily caloric intake Plays an important role in food security The rice endosperm is deficient in many nutrients including vitamins, proteins, micro nutriets(Fe & Zn),  EAAs, etc. The aleuron layer of dehusked rice grains is nutrient rich but is lost during milling and polishing.
  12. 12. Introduction • Quality refers to the suitability or fitness of an economic plant product in relation to its end use. • Definition of quality varies according to our needs from the viewpoint of seeds, crop growth, crop product, post-harvest technology, consumer preferences, cooking quality, keeping quality, transportability etc. (Gupta, 2001). • A trait that defines some aspect of produce quality is called quality trait. • Each crop has a specific and often somewhat to completely different set of quality traits.

  15. 15. • 2.0 Grain quality characteristics • Rice grain quality represents a summary of the physical and chemical characteristics that may be genetic or acquired properties. • The genetic properties include: • chemical characteristics (gelatinization temperature, apparent amylase content, gel consistency, alkali spreading value and aroma), • shape, • size, • color of grain, • chalkiness, • bulk density, • thermal conductivity, • equilibrium moisture content and • flowability. • The acquired properties or environmental factors are either additional to the normal complement of genetic qualities or are the consequence of certain genetic qualities being lost or modified. The important acquired properties are: •
  16. 16. • moisture content, • grain purity, • physical and pest damage, cracked grains, • presence of immature grains and • milling-related characteristics (milling and head rice recoveries, grain dimensions, whiteness, milling degree and chalkiness) will likewise be included. • Milling-related characteristics are relevant measures of value because these are the major concern of consumers. The quality characteristics of paddy and milled rice can be considered separately. •
  17. 17. rice
  18. 18. • There are several defined classes of rice, based on the physical appearance of the milled rice, the cooking properties and the aroma of the rice. Thus quality evaluation programs should go hand-in-hand with breeding programs, and all quality evaluation programs should have the capacity to measure at least the basic traits. • A rice grain consists of: • Starch (~94%) • Protein (~5%) • Lipids (~1%) • But, different levels of structure in the grain affect the physical and the cooking properties!

Cooking and eating qualities • Optimum cooking time • Volume expansion and water absorption • Kernel length after cooking (KLAC) and breadth after cooking (KBAC) RICE QUALITY CHARACTERSRICE QUALITY CHARACTERS
  20. 20. • The length and width of a rice grain are important attributes that determine the class of the rice. There are three main classes of rice, based on grain length: short, medium and long. In terms of width, Arborio styles are generally the widest, followed by short, medium and long. The ratio of the length and the width is used internationally to describe the shape and class of the variety. The other important aspect of length and width is uniformity all the grains in one sample must look the same
  21. 21. • Cracking decreases head rice yield because cracked grains often break during milling. Most markets require whole or unbroken grain, therefore cracked grain can reduce payments received by the grower and the miller. • Cracking also decreases the cooking quality of the grain. Grains that are cracked but remain intact during milling are deemed visually undesirable. • Further, during cooking the starch leaches out of cracked grain and collects as a sticky layer on the bottom of the rice cooker. If rice is cooked by the rapid boil technique, the starch leaches from the rice into the cooking water.
  22. 22. • Crack Detector Using the Paddy Crack Detector, count the number of cracked grains in a 100 grain sample then compute the % cracked grains. Cracks in grains can be detected by red and blue light
  23. 23. • The physical parameters of quality (except colour) can be measured objectively and instrumentally by using a FOSS Cervitec. This machine uses Artificial Neural Networks to learn the quality traits of white and brown rice
  24. 24. The whiteness and translucence of rice is important... • The whiteness ranges from white to yellow. Yellowness occurs because of aging or higher protein content. The higher protein content changes the cooking properties of rice, particularly increasing the propensity of the rice to undergo retrogradation cooling on cooking. • Translucence relates to the degree of crystallinity of the starch a function of the structure and packaging of the amylopectin molecules, and to the ability of the light to be refracted without interfering with protein bodies. High protein detracts from quality.
  25. 25. Chalkiness... • Chalk is the opaque area in the rice grain and is undesirable in  almost  every  market.  Chalky  areas  occur  because  of  malformed  starch  granules  with  air  spaces  between  them.  Chalky areas cook differently from translucent areas, but only  a  very  clever  palate  could  detect  the  difference.  There  are  small  differences  in  the  solubility  of  the  starch  and  the gelatinization  temperature of  the  chalky  and  translucent  areas, but research has yet to discover why.
  26. 26. A visual rating of the chalky proportion of the grain is used to  measure chalkiness based on the standard Evaluation System  SES  scale presented below:                     %chalky grains = wt of chalky grains / wt of milled grains * 100 Scale % area of chalkiness 1 less than 10 5 10-20 9 more than 20
  27. 27. Cooking and Eating characteristics Gelatinization temperature  • Unmodified starch granules are generally insoluble in water below 50°C.  Over a critical temperature range, the starch granules undergo irreversible  process known as gelatinization Temperature (GT). Amylose content  • Amylose  content  (AC)  is  the  single  most  important  character  predicting  rice cooking and eating quality features – Low  amylose  varieties  are  moist,  sticky  and  glossy;  when  cooked  readily  split  and  disintegrate when over cooked. – Rice with high amylose, cook dry and fluffy but become hard on cooking. – Intermediate types are fluffy but retain soft texture when on cooling. Gel consistency • Gel consistency (GC) determines the cohesiveness, tenderness and gloss of  cooked rice when the amylose content is high.
  28. 28. Grain elongation and aroma: • Aromatic long grain basmati rices are known for their pleasant aroma and extra elongation on cooking with least breadth wise swelling. • Lengthwise expansion without increase in girth is considered a highly desirable trait in some high quality rices such as Basmati rices • The aroma of rice plays a dominant role in consumer acceptability and it draws premium price in certain speciality markets.
  29. 29. Quality traits Range Minimal acceptable range Hulling % 75 – 80 - Milling % 70 – 75 65 Head rice recovery % 30 – 60 45 Kernel length (mm) 3.0 – 8.0 >6.61 Kernel breadth (mm) 2.0 – 3.0 <2.0 L/B ratio 1.5 – 3.5 3.50 Amylose (%) 1.0 – 32.0 20-25 Alkali value (GT) 2.0 – 7.0 4-7 Gel consistency (mm) 27 – 100 >40 Kernel colour Black – Red – Brown – white - Transparency Translucent – chalky - White belly Present occasionally present – Absent - Classification Fine – Medium – Bold -
  30. 30. Grain shape: • Follow the procedure of determining grain shape of paddy.   Based on the length to width ratio, the shape of the milled rice  will be determined. The ISO Classification is as follows: Scale Shape L/W ratio 1 Slender Over 3.0 3 medium 2.1 – 3.0 5 bold 1.1-2.0 9 round 1.0 or less

  32. 32. ANALYSIS OF RICE QUALITY CHARACTERS 1. Alkali test 2. Amylose estimation 3. Gel consistency test 4. Test for Aroma
  33. 33. • Moisture content Moisture content has a marked influence on  all aspects of paddy and rice quality and it is essential that  paddy be milled at the proper moisture content to obtain the  highest head rice yield. Paddy is at its optimum milling  potential at moisture content of 14%. Grains with high  moisture content are too soft to withstand hulling pressure  without undue breakage and may be pulverized. Grain that is  too dry becomes brittle and has greater breakage. • Moisture content and temperature during the drying process is  also critical as it determines whether fissures and/or full cracks  are introduced into the grain structure
  34. 34. • Head rice percentage. The head rice percentage is the volume  or weight of head grain or whole kernel in the rice lot.  Head  rice normally includes broken kernels that are 75-80% of the  whole kernel. High head rice yield is one of the most  important criteria for measuring milled rice quality.  Broken  grain has normally only half of the value of head rice. To a  large extent, the characteristics of the paddy determine the  potential head rice yield although the milling process is  responsible for some losses and damage to the grain.
  35. 35. Moisture Tester • Read the operators instruction • Turn on the moisture meter and ensure that the machine is set  for paddy or rough rice. • Fill the tray/bowl of the moisture tester with paddy samples. • Turn/press the knob until the moisture reading is displayed. • Test at least three samples
  36. 36. Amylose content: • Amylose  content is important because firmness and stickiness  are two properties of cooked rice that influence consumer  preference for, and use of different classes of rice • Amylose  content has traditionally been assessed by chemical  analysis of the rice but technology has produced non- destructive methods using the NIR and the visible regions of  the spectrum.  • Recently too, a microsatellite marker has been discovered in  the flanking region of the GBSS gene and the polymorphism  relates to the amylose class and the market type. Fairly rapid  throughput methods have been developed for analysis of the  microsatellite in each rice line.
  37. 37. • Twenty grains are selected and ground in the UDY Cyclone Mill. Amylose content is analyzed using the simplified iodine colorimetric procedure. Samples are categorized into low, intermediate and high based on the following grouping: • Category %Amylose Content Low 10-20 Intermediate 20-25 High 25-30
  38. 38. Gelatinisation temperature: • Gelatinisation temperature is the temperature at which the starch in rice begins the process of cooking. At this point the starch granules take in water and lose their crystalline nature, a change that is irreversible. Rice starch usually gelatinises between 65*C and 85*C. • Rice with a gelatinisation temperature at the lower end of the range often cooks to a softer texture and retrogrades less than rice with a gelatinisation temperature at the upper end of the range. • Gelatinisation is often measured by the alkali spreading method. However technology has improved the measurement of this trait too. Differential scanning calorimetry gives the actual temperature of gelatinization and the energy required for the particular rice to pass through that transition.
  39. 39. • Gelatinization temperature is measured using alkali-spreading value. The alkali digestibility test is employed. Grains are soaked in 1.7% KOH and incubated in a 30o C oven for 23 hours. Measurement ranges based on the following: •   Category Temp ranges (o C) Alkali Spread low 55-69 6-7 Intermediate 70-74 4-5 High 75-79 2-3
  40. 40. • Gel consistency Gel consistency measures the tendency of the cooked rice to harden on cooling. Gel consistency is determined by heating a small quantity of rice in a dilute alkali. This test differentiates the consistency of cold 5.0% milled rice paste. Within the same amylose group, varieties with a softer gel consistency are preferred, and the cooked rice has a higher degree of tenderness. • Harder gel consistency is associated with harder cooked rice and this feature is particularly evident in high-amylose rice. Hard cooked rice also tend to be less sticky
  41. 41. • Gel consistency.  • Two to 10 grains are selected and ground separately in the Wig-L Bug. Gel consistency is measured by the cold gel in a test tube, being held horizontally, for one hour. Measurement ranges and category are as follows:     Category Consistency, mm Soft 61-100 Medium 41-60 hard 26-40
  42. 42. Viscosity : • Viscosity is a characteristic that indicates some of the cooking properties of rice. The cooking properties of rice are primarily measured by Rapid Visco Analysis (RVA), which mimics the process of cooking and monitors the changes to a slurry of rice flour and water, during the test • The slurry is stirred constantly with a paddle and heated. Viscosity is measured as the resistance of the slurry to the paddle
  43. 43. TEXTURE: • Texture describes what we might experience in our mouths when eating rice: initial mouthfeel, hardness, adhesiveness, cohesiveness, springiness, resilience, gumminess and chewiness. • Rice research and development programs in Louisiana and Arkansas, in the USA, are attempting to identify instrumental methods that correlate well with scores reported by sensory panels for the different textural characters.
  44. 44. Flavour and aroma: • Basmati and jasmine are classes of fragrant style rice. Fragrant rice contains particular compounds that give the rice flavour. Otherwise, slightly perceptible changes in flavour of all rice classes can be caused by aging, storage, the depth of milling (i.e. the amount of polishing), the local environment and probably a number of other things. • Flavour in fragrant rice is produced by volatile compounds, many of which are volatilised during cooking to produce an aroma • Environmental conditions can cause a lot of the variation seen in aroma. Aroma is measured by simply sniffing the rice. Otherwise the peaks can be quantified by Gas Chromatography.
  45. 45. AROMATIC RICE • Aromatic rice is one of the major types of rice. • It is a medium to long-grained rice. • It is known for its nut-like aroma and taste, which is caused by the chemical compound 2-acetyl-1- pyrroline. • Varieties of aromatic rice include: basmati, jasmine, Texmati, Tulaipanji, Wehani, and wild pecan rice. • When cooked, the grains have a light and fluffy texture.
