Abstract
Milling and cooking qualities of conduction parboiled paddy samples of 'ADT 36', 'IR 20' and 'CO 45' were determined. The initial moisture content and contact time contributed for more head rice recovery, alkali expansion val ue and gelatinization percentage. Hardness increased by 50 to 60%, whereas the whiteness decreased due to parboiling compared to that of control. The cooking time decreased by 1 to 2 min. and there was no appreciable change i n water uptake and swelling index.
